In the city: VHILS

Urban artist Alexandre Farto, also known as Vhils, whose work has reflected the consequences of development in cities and communities all over the world.


"I work a lot with the chaotic elements of the city ... It's almost an archaeologist's work," he said. "Instead of painting with paints, I paint with layers. I try to reflect on them by exposing them … When you carve on a wall it really reflects the story of the city. If the history is recent, the wall is flat, it doesn't have many layers, and this has a meaning, too"
