If you’ve spent any time in cities around the world, you’ve probably noticed that street art and graffiti are now everywhere. A lot of it is pretty underwhelming, but, once in a while, you’ll see something that really knocks your socks off.

A graffiti artist going by the name of Vile has a spray painting technique that is so impressive, it looks like he’s actually carved his name into the walls he adorns with his art. But, rest assured, it’s an optical illusion that he has perfected. All he needs it a can of spray paint.

Vile, whose real name is Rodrigo Miguel Sepúlveda Nunes, hails from Portugal. He studied at two different schools in Lisbon between 2000 and 2006 and worked on a number of different skills, including illustration, watercolors, oil, digital drawing, and even tattooing.

By combining all of those skills, Vile is able to create these masterful pieces of art that appear to be transparent, as if you’re looking directly through the walls he paints on. These optical illusions truly are remarkable; I can honestly say that I’ve never seen street art this good before in my life.
