Alexandre Farto also known as VHILS just wrapped up an important 3month exhibition in Portugal titled, ‘DISSECTION’ curated by João Pinharanda for the EDP Foundation. Watch the video and check out his striking landmark exhibition:
“Dissection aims to be an in-depth reflection on the urban space, taking as starting point several of the structural elements that compose it. The artist’s intention is to establish a progressive path through several interconnected environments purposefully built in the museum’s space which enables the viewer to experience the passage from a dimension of noise, chaos and visual saturation – expressing life in contemporary cities – to a neutral setting where he proposes to conduct a methodical dissection of those same urban elements with recourse to the unconventional media and destructive techniques which he has been exploring in his work.
Objects inherent to the urban space which speak of life in the cities are here recontextualised and neutralised with white, eliminating contrasts, details and other characterising marks capable of distracting the viewer. This reflection enables to highlight the essential contained in the elements worked by Vhils through a practice of dissection following different cutting typologies that allow for a comprehensive view of the whole, free of interferences.
This operation of neutralisation permits a clinical, distanced reading, a critical de-composition which enables the unveiling of what lies beneath the several layers that compose these familiar elements which we face daily in a benumbed, unresponsive way. By confronting the viewer with this act of methodical separation, Dissection aims to foster a better understanding of the reality of the contemporary city and the complex web of reciprocal influence which gives form and substance to the relationship between it and its inhabitants.” - João Pinharanda

The San Francisco Bay Guardian which served as a weekly, leading progressive voice in the city of San Francisco since 1966, is closing after its final issue which was released this past Wednesday. Jeremy Fish, who was asked to work on the cover art for its last ever issue said:
” With a broken heart, I proudly present the last issue ever of the San Francisco Bay Guardian. I was unaware this would be the final issue when I drew it, but the day of the dead theme they requested seems so appropriate now as an SF institution dies a tragic death today. RIP SFBG and thanks for everything over the years. I will miss you.” – Jeremy Fish via Instagram
The Bay Guardian originally founded by Bruce Brugmann and his wife, Jean Dibble, 48 years ago, will now be missed by the SF community.
Some New walls recently completed by Spanish artist ARYZ while visiting Basque Country, Spain in Bilbao and in Casablanca, Morocco. Check out his latest mural style focused on representing his recent sketches in large scale.
Bilbao, Spain: ”El fin justificado”
“I always thought that the most difficult thing of painting in big formats was too keep the line gesture and the proportions like in the sketches. My sketches have a lot of mistakes and random lines, and somehow I wanted to reproduce that on a wall. The more effects and colors you use on your work, the more you can hide the mistakes and catch the viewer’s attention… when you use the line and not much more, the mistakes can be easily seen…” -Aryz
