Over the past few decades, graffiti has evolved from simple tags and street art to the world of galleries and fine art. Portugese graffiti artist Rodrigo Miguel Sepúlveda Nunes, aka Vile, is combining the two in a very unique way. Vile’s pieces take that ‘Large Letter’ block style lettering you’re familiar with from the “Greetings from…” vintage postcards and adds backgrounds in the interiors of each letter of his name to create an optical illusion that looks like he physically cut through the wall to expose what’s behind it. It’s a weird, almost through-the-looking-glass effect that blends created work backgrounds like space scenes, gardens and abandoned rooms with the natural aspects of the walls they’re painted on. Each one of his works is so clever and well executed that we’d have no problem hanging and of them in our home–even though they’re all built around his name.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
