Peeta Ead

Arts and Culture Frankston

Description

Peeta, has been a graffiti artist since 1993 and he is currently living in Venice.

Description

He is a member of the EAD crew (Padova, Italy), FX and RWK crews (New York City) and has participated, over the years, in jams, festivals and art shows all over the world.

In parallel with his mural and painting activity, sculpture continues to be essential in his overall practice, as it represents for him a direct contact with the three-dimensional, in order to understand the rules of light and shadows and how to reproduce them in painting.

His painting work explores the potential of anamorphism. That is defined as, a distorted projection or perspective; especially an image distorted in such a way that it becomes visible only when viewed in a special manner or from a particular location.
Peeta works with bucket paint.

“Metaphorically, I want to neutralize preconceptions and urge the emergence of new perspectives. Anamorphism totally embodies the intent, always pivotal in my production, to reveal the deceptiveness of human perception, the fallacy of narrow and fixed points of view through visual tricks which, proceeding from the attempt to confer a three-dimensional semblance on a pictorial representation, ultimately reveal their will to deceive.”

In other words, he is trying to trick you.
