An internationally renowned artist, VHILS creates with great skills contemporary, technically daring portraits. Instead of adding paint to a surface, he sculpts, stabs, scratches, rips or sets off explosives to produce his images on the walls.

About

For this new Parisian exhibition, he is pushing his sculptural research initiated at the start of the year at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center even further and experimenting with new techniques to create grandiose three-dimensional works. Epoxy, etched acrylic, or even a fascinating light installation, VHILS is presenting bold and original works. Within the bright and elegant gallery space, he ventures freely into new installation concepts. The parquet flooring brings out the transparency of the works. We walk around, have fun observing them from the side or from above, and dive into the depth of their multiple layers.

Born and raised in Portugal, Alexandre Farto studied at Central Saint Martins in London. His work has been exhibited around the world and is referenced in multiple publications, including on the cover of the Times, the Forbes's ranking of 30 thirty-year-olds who make Portugal today, or the imposing 608-page monograph “Pentimento” which was dedicated to him recently.
