Passing by British street artist Pref”s work, you might just see a carefully rendered array of colors and shapes. Maybe you”ll even be able to pick out the shapes of letters. But upon closer inspection, the genius of these pieces reveals itself when you realize that each painting contains an entire phrase all stacked up and layered into one clever composition.
Take a look at Pref”s art below and see if you can decipher the messages.
We”ll start off simple. There are only two words here.
Okay, let”s try another easy one. You can probably see the two main words immediately, but look for a third word lurking in there.
This one is also only three words, but each word is a bit longer, so they”re woven together more intricately.
How about this one?
Okay, so now that you”ve got the hang of it, see if you can decipher the images below. The letters can come in bright colors, but they can also appear as shadows. Pref also uses the negative space between them to create even more letters! Look carefully and see what you can find.
