VHILS

by gabijazilionyte

International art superstar, even though born in 1987, Vhils has done museum shows in Lisbon, Brazil, Paris, London, Shanxai & many more places. He has also created a music video for U2 and is concidered to be among TOP10 world artists under 30.

Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto has been interacting visually with the urban environment under the name of Vhils since his days as a prolific graffiti writer in the early 2000s. His groundbreaking carving technique – which forms the basis of the Scratching Surface series and was first presented to the public at the VSP group show in Lisbon in 2007 and at the Cans Festival in London in 2008, has been hailed as one of the most compelling approaches to art created in the street in the last decade.
