It was in the mid-1980s when he used a spray can for the first time. He painted some signatures and doodles on his neighborhood walls. But only in the mid-1990s, Sérgio had his first contact with graffiti when some graffiti writers painted outside the neighborhood (Carcavelos), where graffiti had a strong movement.
His first experiments were to paint illegally on the street walls and mostly on the railway lines of the Sintra line.
The passion he has always shown for drawing found a new purpose. His artistic evolution was impressive due to his dedication to painting large-scale murals in Damaia, Carcavelos, and in many poor neighborhoods of Amadora city.
Without any school graduation or art lessons, he never gave up,.All of his knowledge about art was entirely self-taught.
After several years of painting street murals with the name “Eith”, it was in 2003 that he created the name “Odeith”.
In 2005, he began his path to international recognition
as a result of his innovative pieces using the anamorphosis technique
Most of Odeith's compositions are painted in 90º corners and flat walls, truly create a 3D optical illusion effect.
