Venice-based graffiti artist Manuel Di Rita turns urban buildings into stunning works of art. Rita adeptly incorporates optical illusions into his art to alter the human perception of spaces and reality.

In order to achieve abstract drawings with a 3D appearance, he transforms traditional shapes into irregular yet smooth forms to create geometrical solids.

As a result, his graffiti exhibits a distorted projection of a recognizable image which requires the viewer to occupy a specific vantage point. For him, producing a temporary interruption of normality allows viewers to reveal the deceptiveness of human perception.

Rita started his career as a graffiti artist in 1993. The aspiring artist created his first mural on his neighbor's small wall fencing. That's when he decided to pursue his passion in graffiti. He later became a member of some of the most-renowned teams of graffiti artists. He also has participated in various art shows and festivals in different parts of the world.
