ABOUT THIS ART
Manuel di Rita aka Peeta is an Italian artist born in a small town near Venice, Italy. In the early 90's he took on the moniker Peeta within the Italian graffiti scene, as his craft evolved, he joined the Paduan EAD crew and became one of the area's most well respected artists.

Confidence is a great example of Peeta's style. The colors create a bold, vibrant image and Peeta's use of shading and shapes creates the illusion of 3-D sculpture occupying a 2-D space. The illusion he creates with paint is something only a master could accomplish. Peeta's work intersects the line of beautiful, fine art, and gritty street influences. The reproduction of "Confidence" explodes on the paper as perfect sample of Peeta's talent.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Peeta, also known as Manuel Di Rita, has been a graffiti artist since 1993 and is currently living in Venice. He is a member of the EAD crew (Padova, Italy), FX and RWK crews (New York City) and has participated in graffiti jams and Meeting of Styles events in Europe and the Americas. His work explores the potential of sculptural lettering, both in painting and in sculpture.

In my work, I endeavour to realize the sculptural quality of individual letters, namely the ones that spell out my own moniker Peeta. I break them from their generic typographical form, stylizing them with shape and volume beyond its mere semantic function. Thus my own lettering is brought into the fluidity of the urban, where words are continuously ruptured from their own histories, readapted into idiom and gestures learned off the street. The final result derived from the fusion between traditional lettering and three dimensional style has given life to a unique kind of visual rhythm, created by the intersecting lines between sections of conic, cylindrical and twisting surfaces. The role of sculpture comes to be essential for this purpose. It represents for me a direct contact with three-dimensionality in order to understand the rules of light and shadows and to reproduce them.

Despite the depth of research into technical and formal perfection, the materialness of three-dimensional painting hides a deeply spiritual side. Shades of colour and perceptive tricks are essentially the means to a progressive disclosure of my own personality. They are an implicit intermediary of a precise message — of my will to understand myself and subsequently to describe my ego. The choice to represent and reiterate my own name is already an attempt to paint a self-portrait. My works are aimed at revealing 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.
