Talk about graffiti artists today, and you'll find they have shed some of the street arts old stigmas. The once-rogue street art genre has been welcomed into the traditional art world, and when you look at the fantastic 3D street art of Sergio Odeith, it's easy to see why.

The Portuguese artist started creating realistic art in the '90s when it was first gaining prominence in the country. He started with simple sketches on street walls and train tracks but then advanced into large-scale 3D drawings. Odeith continued to evolve and adopted the obscure signature style, which he refers to as "sombre 3D." This technique combines angles, lines, and shadows to create an extraordinary 3D art effect. In 2005 he gained international recognition for his anamorphic art series and realistic drawings, which looked like something out of a science horror fiction flick, with giant spiders appearing to climb off the walls at helpless passers-by.

Not surprisingly, the Lisbon-based muralist has since been asked to design pieces across the pond in the U.S cities of Baton Rouge, L.A, Charleston and Lexington and has even received business contracts with major corporations like Coca-Cola, Samsung, and Shell.

You know how to tell if it's an alligator or a crocodile? It all depends on when you will see them next (later or after a while)

It's so cool that he painted that chain just for the photo. Once he leaves it'll just be hanging like that... unless the man is painted as well.

The one on top of the cube makes me think of something from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat. Overall, pretty freaky but cool too.
