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.

Vhils continues to be one of the best around. His new piece for the Walk & Talk Festival in Portugal looks as if it was made in some distant Roman Empire only to be discovered now. The man is a Stand Out. (via Vhils)
Lisbon’s Vhils is one of the most exciting artists we see doing a ton of work around the world… the original idea to create public art and portraits from carving/chipping into walls is some of the best street work you will see. Here is his new wall in Aveiro, Portugal.
Last week, Mexico City celebrated the public art festival, All City Canvas, featuring major murals on multi-storied buildings from Aryz, Vhils, Herakut, Escif, Saner, Sego, Interesni Kazki, El Mac, and Roa. Here are some of the final looks at the completed murals, and thank you to everyone at FIFTY24MX and their friends who helped us on the ground during the festival.
