Vhils new print

January 21, 2013

Vhils (1987) has been developing a very unique visual language, starting out from the more illegal and interventive side of graffiti, working the removal of surface layers of walls, objects and other, non-conventional media, which aim symbolically to establish a relation of continuity between cultural and social disparities.

His new print arrived at Widewalls this week and its a serious bit of paper.

His new print follows his unconventional working processes using bleach and acid to affect a new working surface for his silkscreen portraiture. Using very heavy gauge paper that looks like it has been inked he then uses a mixture of chemicals producing a series of unique backgrounds for his haunting silkscreen to cover. Available here

He has exhibited in galleries and participated in events in a wide range of countries, included in some of the most renowned contemporary urban art projects. He lives and works between London and Lisbon.
