VHILS in Łódź Reveals Ghostly Profile Using Signature Destruction

Posted on October 29, 2014

It isn’t often that Street Artist Vhils aka Alexandre Farto does a profile view and this one gives you the feeling that she is ignoring you, or otherwise engaged. Perhaps the newest wall at Urban Forms in Łódź, Poland is his take on the feeling one gets when his girlfriend is always looking at a screen while he talks to her, meriting only a portion of her full attention.

Marking the end of his three month “Dissection” show at EDP Foundation in his native Portugal, Vhils landed in Poland to create their 34th mural in the series and created this wistful portrait emerging from a distressed wall.  Using his signature reductive, destructive method, he reveals something you may not realize was waiting to surface, a ghostly visage which even now is beguiling as you gaze upon it. Perhaps she is remembering something, or calculating, or staring off into nothingness.
