Alexandre Farto, aka VHILS, is a street artist from Portugal. Having studied at the University of the Arts in London, Central Saint Martins, and Byam Shaw Fine Art Skills and Practices, VHILS carves human portraits into the walls of the city in order to tell the story of its inhabitants.
His carving technique has been greeted as one of the most fascinating approaches to art created in the streets in the last decade.
His technique is rather intriguing. VHILS uses destruction as a creative force. He uses collage, wheat paste, wood, metal, installations, and more. He is also known for using etching acid, bleach, pneumatic drills, and other processes.
This Fall, the artist will come for the first time in Romania for three new murals made in the aesthetics of the vandalism, as he calls it. Bucharest, Cluj x Timisoara, be prepared for something great! Spread the word and share with us the photos you’ll be taking of those beautiful art works that will transform your cities.
