Alexandre Farto aka Vhils | on Tumblr (b.1987, Portugal) - Moscow / Cans Festival, London
Alexandre Farto aka Vhils is a Portuguese graffiti/street artist working with various mediums including wall carvings, billboards, metal, paper, wood, and other mixed media. “With my work, I try to delve into the several layers that compose the edifice of history, to take the shadows cast by this model of uniform development to try and understand what lies behind it.” Vhils says, “In this act of excavating, it’s the process itself which is expressive, more than the final result. It’s a process of trying to reflect upon our own layers.” (cf. Wikipedia) Please visit his website or follow his Tumblr for more work.
