Peeta Goes Mono on a 3D Piece in Gainesville, Florida“I went back to monochromatic pieces after a long time,” says Street Artist Peeta about his new anamorphic mural in Gainseville, Florida. His ability to master the optical illusion of three dimensions is well known and even revered by many – the result of talking measurements and doing calculations so that the geometric forms translate from the right point of view.

Working in the context of the building here in West University Avenue, Peeta also playfully incorporates the existing windows into his mural. Peeta for GNV Urban Art LLC. Gainesville, FL.

He extruded windows and used the natural color of the building creating a tone-on-tone sculptural effect” Peeta for GNV Urban Art LLC. Gainesville, FL.
