Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS

Portuguese graffiti/street artist, Alexandre Farto aka Vhils continues to leave his foot print around the world, carving massive portraits and poignant murals that challenge our perceptions of 2-dimensional street art.  His laborious techniques of carving directly into the walls brings forth beautifully executed murals that defy our expectations of what murals and street art can be.  We follow his journey around the world and revisit some of his works on today’s post. alexandrefarto streetart upperplayground citrusreport05 Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS wall carving wall art vhils upper playground street art portrait Mural etching clockwork boat Alexandre Farto alexandrefarto streetart upperplayground citrusreport02 Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS wall carving wall art vhils upper playground street art portrait Mural etching clockwork boat Alexandre Farto alexandrefarto streetart upperplayground citrusreport03 Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS wall carving wall art vhils upper playground street art portrait Mural etching clockwork boat Alexandre Farto alexandrefarto streetart upperplayground citrusreport04 Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS wall carving wall art vhils upper playground street art portrait Mural etching clockwork boat Alexandre Farto alexandrefarto streetart upperplayground citrusreport06 Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS wall carving wall art vhils upper playground street art portrait Mural etching clockwork boat Alexandre Farto     alexandrefarto streetart upperplayground citrusreport01 Converting massive walls to beautiful portraits by VHILS wall carving wall art vhils upper playground street art portrait Mural etching clockwork boat Alexandre Farto
