one of the top stencil artists in the world
considered one of the top veterans still in the game, creating street art for about 20 years
the artist never adds text to his stencils, in order to give the viewer the full possibility of the interpretation.
In his choice of backgrounds, layers of random, yet well selected found objects speak of passing time, with an outcome that is both, aesthetic and meaningful.

Also known as Vhils, Farto is a portuguese street artist born in 1987 who started making graffiti at the young age of 13 on walls & trains. Wanted his work to depict the changes of the city over the years which led to him creating art by etching into walls. He carves through layers of stone and brick using drills, hammers, chissels, and explosives. Carves faces on walls to humanize the place, so people can relate. By etching away and revealing layers he shows changes of the city by bringing the past to the present, and making you think about the future.
