Remarkably Realistic Bob Marley Tribute Mural Towers Over the Streets of Portugal

Portuguese street artist Odeith picked up his first spray paint can in the 1980's and has been creating all kinds of mind-blowing art every since. His creatively composed anamorphic work and masterfully detailed graffiti art is so realistic that it seems to pop right off of the surface of walls and out of corners of various streets throughout the world.

Taking a slight turn from his typography optical illusions, Odeith recently created this amazing tribute to Bob Marley. The enormous mural, which took the artist a few days to complete, is an extraordinary, monochromatic portrayal of the legendary singer. Residents of Quinta do Mocho in Portugal will be pleasantly surprised to come upon the remarkably elaborate portrait, which towers stories above the street.

When speaking about his work, Odeith says, “For years most of my paintings had a message to society because I thought I could change the World. Now I don't care about it–I just want to change my life before the World changes me.”
