What a great style of street art! This remind of 3d wall poster art of the 1980’s and 1990’s. Astro’s work also reminds me of the painter Victor Vasarely but on a much larger scale! I would like to see how many drawings and smaller paintings the artist makes in preparation for his murals, the size of his work is so massive in scale!
Astro also has great eye for color. The artist has a great talent for building up layers of paint that work well together to give his work a glowing feeling.
