Price range information: This artist is great for the fact its very easy to purchase a fine print. At the website listed above prints range from 25€ up to  550€. If you live in States or own U.S. dollars its a great opportunity to buy a piece of fine art whilst the dollar is so strong against the euro.

In this clip from Odeith we see many examples of his style of artistic lettering:

 

Odeith stands alone with his style of building dimension in letters. With many street artists who use typography they exaggerate the letters so much I can’t understand them! Not so with Odeith, whose letters and work I can recognize at first glance.

Many artists are able to make fantastic images making three dimensional works out of letters, but what is so impressive about Odeith is that he is able to apply his style to the corners of buildings, and their 90 degree angles, in addition to painting on the flat side of a building.
