Urban Art Route


Alexandre Farto, or Vhils (Lisbon, 1987), is a Portuguese artist known for the faces he ‘sculpts’ on walls. He completed his studies in 2008 at the University of the Arts, in London. He started painting in 1998, when he was only 11 years old. He painted walls and trains in the south bank of the Tagus river. His innovative low-relief sculpting technique has been praised as one of the most compelling approaches of urban art in the last decade.
