Vhils “Scratching the Surface”

Vhils produces some of the most impactful street art in the world. Using processes ranging from controlled TNT explosions to corrosion. acid and bleach and hammer and chisel, Vhils etches vast, poignant portraits from building exteriors. Produced for his sell out, first UK show, at Lazarides Rathbone Place.

Vhils’ name is now internationally very recognized. His trademark is the forming of dramatic, oversized portraits made by carving directly into outdoor walls, a process that often involves industrial methods such as drilling and controlled explosions. Using construction tools, he exposes and confronts the architectural surfaces as they narrate the story of the graphic and of the city itself.
