alexandre farto | london

last time in london, whilst walking through brick lane, i stumbled upon this image. at first it looked like a graffiti and then i realized the image was carved on the bulding’s wall.  i find it fascinating!

i soon found out that the artist, alexandre farto, aka vhils,  is a portuguese painter and grafitter, known for his faces sculped on walls. his work can be found on the streets of london, moscow, bogota, new york and la amongst others.

he is also the artist behind the silver elevator in bica, lisboa – remember this post?
