Vhils: Relief Graffiti in Hong Kong

Portuguese artist, Vhils aka Alexandre Farto had his first solo show, “Debris” in Hong Kong, spring 2016. While there, he created several of his signature bas-relief sculptures around the city, along with an installation & video w/ Nowness. He gained prominence in 2008, when his work of a face carved into a wall appeared alongside a stencil by Banksy. An avid experimentalist, he has been developing his concept of the aesthetics of vandalism in a plurality of media (stencil painting, wall carvings, pyrotechnic explosions, 3D modelling, installation & music videos) which have enabled him to expand the boundaries of visual expression. Vhils digs into the surface layers of our material culture like a contemporary urban archaeologist, exposing what lies beyond the superficiality of our cities’ walls. He has created a map of all his walls, if you want to see his work in person. | Previous Post
