Decayed Church Mural by Vhils

After hitting California, China and Lisbon, destruction muralist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils (here our interview with him), just popped up on the Archipelago of the Azores for the currently running Walk & Talk festival…

Recently, he and his team finished up a pretty impressing decayed church mural! This new piece entitled Abraço to ruin (Embrace the ruin) depicts a women retaining the ruin’s walls as if protecting a child. Looks just amazing to me – especially the view over the trees (see above) is killing it. Here are some more impressions, via Vhils’ Facebook:
