How? HOW???

These ultra-realistic insect graffiti works are absolutely incredible/terrifying

Graffiti - sometimes good, sometimes bad. Mostly bad, in fact. But when it’s good, it’s real good - like, it’s the kind of thing that boggles the mind to the bin and back. 

How, pray tell, has this person managed to create a stunning piece of art, on a goddamn wall, using a sodding spray can? It makes no sense, unless you possess the very same skill yourself.

But even those well-versed in the technique must still find their mind in meltdown when faced with the wall-based works of Sergio Odeith. The Portugal-based street artist creates hyper-realistic graffiti using spray paint and is an internationally recognised artist thanks to his amazingly lifelike style that he refers to as “Sombre 3-D”

This is truly impressive (and terrifying) stuff, and there’s really not much more to say other than, “Look at this and prepare for the floor to absolutely deck your chin”: 

Huh???? They’re 3D? How does it work? Is it magic?

Well, if you can believe it, it works like this:

Odeith told BuzzFeed:

“The biggest trick — it’s all about the light and the shadows — depending on where you put them, the piece will create more impact and really pop out from the wall. Sometimes I just use a random image, other times I sketch something that will fit on the place.”

We disagree. It’s magic.
