Graffiti art is getting more and more attention these days. Artists are asked to transform the boring grey facades into gorgeous masterpieces and add new dimensions to the city atmosphere.
Rodrigo Miguel Sepúlveda Nunes, a.k.a. Vile, is an artist from Portugal that loves to write his name on walls. Vile has studied cartoon & animation films, as well as drawing and illustration simultaneously. He made his first graffiti at the age of 14. He started as an independent artist in 2007 and mastered different kinds of techniques which allow him to bring the walls to life.
One of his trademarks is writing his name in 3D while making it look like it was carved or cut out of the wall. By using very carefully selected colors, he creates an illusion that the letters in his name are revealing the inside of the building or simply shows us what’s on the other side of the wall. First, he creates sketches that will fit on the walls and then he creates adequate color schemes based on the hues that are on the wall or the object.
