Faces scratched into the surfaces of walls by Vhils (Alexandre Farto).
I really like the last one
I’ve seen something similar on tv about a brazilian street artist who “cleaned” the walls (wich where dirty because of poullution caused by cars passing by) of a tunnel in a way that in the end there were hundreds of skulls drawn. When police came by and asked him what he was doing, he just said he was “cleaning”.
Finally, autorithies decided to clean all the walls. Great ending :)
Oh, and great work here. The second one looks like a giant ghost!
i belive you’re talking about reverse graffiti. i’ve seen a project called ” The reverse graffiti project” in the Internet a while back and it looked amazing.
However i don’t think Vhills’s work is related to reverse graffiti but honestly i’m not 100% sure.
nevertheless i really like his work.
é pena é ele não ser mais conhecido em Portugal :s
It was a segment called “Paredes que Hablan” (Talking Walls, or something like that) in I-Sat, a TV channel. It shows mostly latinamerican artist, I believe.
And yes, I really like this too
I think the artist you are thinking of is most likely Alexandre Orion who did the skulls inside of the subway tunnels in Brazil? http://www.informal.ro/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/AlexandreOrion.jpg ?
I like both of their work and understand why one might make you think of the other, even though they are aesthetically very different and of course one is out in the open and the other is tucked away underground!
This is stunning. I wish there were more images.
These are lovely – and interesting that people have mentioned Brazil, and specifically (in the case of Alexandre Orion) São Paulo.
I took this pic – j.mp/qVmy0M – here in São Paulo a month ago, of the facade of the art gallery Galeria Vermelho. It seems so similar to these by Vhils – I need to check who the artist of the one I took is.
