Vhils – Destruction Art Book

Vhils   Destruction Art Book

With his technically masterful, contemporary portraits and his sensational art of destruction, including exploding walls, Alexandre Farto aka Vhils soon became one of the most skilled and talented young artists in today’s urban art scene, for what reason I’m really happy that I did this nice interview with him in 2010!

Earlier this year, Gestalten published a fist book about the art of Vhils. Including a preface by Marc and Sara Schiller (who you probably better know as Wooster Collective), the book presents not just Vhils’ popular wall stencils, but also other projects he worked on between 2007 and 2011, like the Nothing lasts Forever and To Have or to Be series, or Scratching the Surface and the Disintegration series. It also includes his major exhibitions at Lazarides Gallery in London and Los Angeles…

All in all, the book contains about 150 colorful and high-quality pages and is a perfect x-mas present for those you love artists who not only add paint onto surfaces but also carve, drill, scratch, rip or blast their images out of walls! Get it now via Amazon and be impressed…
