Vhils

Showing in London
Posted by Gestalten—11/2012

Lazarides Gallery is presenting new work by Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils.The artist’s solo exhibition, entitled Devoid, is opening tonight, November 29th, from 6 until 9 PM.

In contrast to his previous solo exhibitions, the artist’s latest body of work will focus on the individual in relation to the overpowering force of urban environments and to the dominant noise created by the cities’ unidirectional line of communication. Devoid will culminate a series of projects executed in 2012 in Shanghai, Paris, the favelas of Rio and Lisbon. 

“This ephemeral character that interests me in my work is the transience I witnessed while growing up, in the street, in the transformation and development, in all the changes: Nothing Lasts Forever...the contrast between the glamour of the new and the decadence of the old. All this ephemeral nature that can be observed in the street says a lot about the state of people and their way of living in a given moment of time.” – Vhils 

For more Vhils, be sure to check out his monograph Vhils as well as the Limited Collector’s Edition, both published by Gestalten.
