Odeith told Bored Panda that the most challenging recent painting he has done was definitely the anamorphic train. It was very complicated to change all the colors to make them look the same. The angles and light were also a big challenge, the artist said.
We also wanted to find out how Odeith manages to stay passionate about art and how he deals with artistic blocks.
"It's something that lives in me," he said about art. Odeith explained that even though he doesn't feel inspired all the time, he tries to draw inspiration from different themes like nature and various objects to try and create something new and different.
Meanwhile, he deals with artistic blocks by trying to bring something new to the game, no matter the environment he works with or what inspires him. He enjoys challenging himself and seeing how far "madness" can take him.
In a previous interview, Odeith revealed to Bored Panda that he always wanted to be an artist. “I have been drawing since I was a little kid, but I never expected to get this far,” he shared his honest thoughts with us.
There are lots of aspiring graffiti artists who would love to follow in Odeith’s footsteps. According to the artist, if they want to make it big, they have to be disciplined and resilient. “Keep working hard, chase your dreams and never give up.”
We were also able to speak to him about one of his most popular projects—a concrete block that he transformed into an abandoned bus that went viral on social media. According to him, he started the project with “zero inspiration,” but he found it after a good, long nap.
It took the artist 10 hours and 30 spray cans to finish the bus and only one of his followers managed to guess what he was painting.
Odeith dropped out of school at 15 but is now recognized for his skills around the world. He has made large-scale murals for major national and international corporations, including Samsung, Coca-Cola, and Kingsmill. He has also had several Portuguese city halls and the football club Sport Lisboa e Benfica as his clients.
