Featured Artist: Alexandre Farto

Is it graffiti? Or is it just selective wear and tear?  Alexandre Farto aka Vhils is Portuguese artist who creates these stunning portraits through subtraction.  Just like a sculptor carving marble, only it is usually the sides buildings.  Check out more of his work here.






Similar to street artists such as Banksy but instead of adding he subtracts.  
What do you think of street art?  Graffiti or an art form?

  2. Thank you so much!
    I've recently gotten interested in street art...maybe it's my secret rebel side coming out...

    I love the artists you feature on our blog. The collage with old maps I find so fascinating!
