This Artist Carves Graffiti Into Walls, Creating Portraits Through Time

When most people want to graffiti something onto a wall, they go out and buy a mask and some spray paint. That’s how Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) got his start.

But then he realized that he was adding graffiti to old walls, walls that had been painted over again and again and layered over with different materials.

So why keep adding things to those walls? Why not remove things to make images?

So that’s precisely what he did.
