Mind-Bending Anamorphic Graffiti Illusions by Artist Odeith Appear to Float in Mid-Air

graffiti-odeith-08

Lisbon-based Portuguese street artist Odeith has been playing with perspective in his anamorphic artworks for over a decade now. These incredible pieces could easily be achieved with 3D software but there is just enough imperfection to reveal the artist’s hand and give the paintings an incredible energy. Love to come across one of these in person.

Lots more images below.

The 4th Annual Supersonic Invitational group show opens tomorrow, Saturday, January 10th at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco. The show features new work from over 60 international artists, curated by Zach Tutor. The same Zach Tutor that is guest contributing for us right now (see his posts so far). He’s way too humble to post about his own show, so I’m doing it for him! If you live out that way, definitely go check it out, it’s gonna be fantastic.

Illustrators and cartoonists around the world are paying tribute to those killed in the terrible shooting that just occurred at the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. 12 people were killed by the masked gunmen, including Charlie Hebdo’s editor and publisher Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier, and three cartoonists Jean “Cabu” Cabut, Georges Wolinski, and Bernard Verlhac (known as “Tignous”).

Many artists and newspapers took to Twitter using the hashtag #charliehebdo and #jesuischarlie to respond to the killings:
