Striking visual poetry from Vhils


Aurum Gallery Bangkok proudly introduces Vhils, as part of our collection!

Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto has been interacting visually with the urban environment under the name of Vhils since his days as a prolific graffiti writer in the early to mid 2000s.

One of the most skilled and talented young artists in the urban art scene today, Vhils carves, drills, scratches, rips and blasts his images out of architectural walls and various other materials.

His striking form of visual poetry, showcased around the world in both indoor and outdoor settings, has been described as brutal and complex, yet imbued with a simplicity that speaks to the core of human emotions.
