3D Graffiti: Glossy Sculptures / Peeta

via:

Peeta is a young Italian artist born in a small town near Venice. He entered the graffiti scene in 1993 and since then, he has been collaborating with some very important crews: the Paduan EAD, the FX crew and the RWK crew, both from NY. After having painted his graffiti all around Europe and America for a very long time, he has started also producing sculpures and canvases and exhibited them all around the world. The elaboration of his personal style comes from the intent of joining together traditional lettering with 3D painting. This experiment has finally resulted in giving life to a unique kind of visual rhythm, created by the intersecting lines between sections of conic, cylindrical and twisting surfaces.

Small Twistersculpture has been built using 3D modeling PC programs, and PVC plate assembly, polyester covering and final surface smoothing.Small Glimpse sculpture is part of a bigger project consisting of sculptures of the same shape using three different materials. The initial model was made using polyester covered cardboard sheets. Then constructed was one sculpture of PVC using the same process described before. Finally, three bronze copies were made using the investment casting technique. And one final copy, Small Glimpse Glossy, in plastic, using the same mold utilised for the bronze copies.
