Artist #1

Peeta Sculptural Graffiti

These stunning artworks by the artist Peeta are made from a variety of materials. Some are made from polyurethane and then spray-painted. Other materials that the artist uses include cardboard, wood, fabrics, graphite and cellulose acetate. I would describe his work as very unique in the way he uses plain cardboard to execute his designs. The use of shadow and highlights bring out the detail of the letters he is trying to represent in his sculpture. This is something I would love to learn more about; on how to develop art like these pieces.

Above: Untitled – 2008 by Peeta. Some pieces use cardboard as the basic structure for the design, with high quality fabrics stitched over the framework.

Above: “S” – 2003 by Peeta. This piece was created using hand-made cellulose acetate which lends the sculpture a slick, shiny feel.
