Originally from Guadalajara, Carlos Alberto GH creates amazing 3D graffiti. Meet 17 of his impressive and magical works.
Graffiti is a type of art genre that means writing or drawing on a wall or other surface, usually without permission and in public view. Graffiti ranges from simple words to elaborate wall paintings. It has been around since ancient times, with examples dating back to ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.
Graffiti is a controversial subject. In most countries, property owners and civic authorities consider marking or painting property without permission to be defacement and vandalism. It is a crime that is punishable, taking into account the use of graffiti by street gangs to mark territory or to serve as an indicator of related activities.
However, little by little, graffiti has transcended beyond being just a way of “marking territories” for gangs. For years, graffiti has been legitimized as another artistic expression with its own merits.
Many contemporary analysts and even art critics have begun to see the artistic value of some graffiti and recognize it as a form of public art.
This is the case of the Mexican artist Carlos Alberto GH.
Originally from Guadalajara, Carlos creates amazing 3D graffiti. He finds inspiration in nature, in the world around him, and also in the good deeds and actions of other people.
The artist found the idea of his art to be magical worlds that blend with the real world of urban areas and public spaces fascinating. Being able to share the creation process with them feels like a big performance, where at the end anyone can interact and be part of a show that continues years after it’s all over.
In this way, Carlos is one of the most talented 3-D artists in the world. His work can be seen in Mexico, but also in the United States and throughout Europe, where he transforms the real world of urban areas into magical worlds.
