Vhils Video Interview

Germany's international broadcaster Deutsche Welle recently filmed a portrait of Portuguese street artist Vhils, who is undoubtedly one of the most skilled and talented young artists on the urban art scene today.

He creates technically masterful, contemporary portraits by not only adding paint or other materials onto surfaces, but also carving, drilling, scratching, ripping, or blasting his images out of walls. With nothing less than archeological meticulousness, Vhils penetrates through countless layers of posters, dirt, and plaster to set free the unsettlingly poetic images hidden in urban spaces.
