Scratching The Walls To Create Street Art

We want to share with you this inspiring and refreshing wall art by Alexandre Farto, better known as Vhils, but contrarly to other steet artists that put paint on the walls, he creates large scale portraits by scratching and chipping plasters out of walls of depleted buildings. His works give new life to decrepit buildings, while helping them retain a timely character at the same moment. Often his works leave chipped away plaster at their base, tipping off observers as to how the piece was created. Farto's work has made an impact far and wide, with examples in many European cities and New York.
