Macau Debris: Works by Alexandre Farto aka Vhils

Why We Recommend it

Hong Kong-based Portuguese artist Vhils introduces to Macau his iconic brand of mural art that comments on the interdependent relationship between contemporary life and its urban context.


Vhils, aka Alexandre Farto, has become globally recognized for developing a unique visual poetry by creating murals using a singular carving technique that involves removing the surface layers of walls and other media with non-conventional tools.

From stencil painting to wall carvings, billboards to screen prints, pyrotechnic explosions to neon lights, Vhils has been exploring the  aesthetics of vandalism in a range of media that pushes the boundaries of artist expression.

His exhibit in Macau will feature over 20 works inspired by Macau, and will coincide with his creating four new public murals that aim on reflect on the convergence of time and history, construction and demolition.
