Street Art by Alexandre Farto aka Vhils


The 24 years old portuguese graffiti artist Alexandre Farto (Vhils) started with a traditional graffiti “bombing” and  later he passed on to the street art and has been doing this for the past 3 years. The whole world is considered to be his home town and the point of inspiration. The old town of Lisbon and his room are his most favorite places, where Alexandre loves to work or see the art of the others. At nights he explores the process of burning, and if got some more time he would finish one trick, visit some train watching spots and sleep for a long time…

Vhils oversteped the limits of graffiti. So now when going to a future work-of-art place he‘s taking not only spray bottles of paints, but also a perforator, a hammer and some scratchers. After spraying the drawing he “deepens” it taking off the plaster and paper in some spots. That‘s why his stunning works-of-art are considered to be the 2-D sculptures. His art is poetic, complicated, usually concentrated to essential things which we have abandoned for our short-time wishes. In some way they are saying that it is possible to come back and feel happiness again...

Vhils is creating on walls, wood, metal, paper, billboards, prints and art instalations...
