PROJECT II - PHASE 2: EXPLORATION

The piece I chose to replicate was a work that Vhils created at Le M.U.R in Paris. This piece was not one of my 3 previously chosen pieces, but I thought it would be a really interesting way to work in terms of this project as I would not only be able to destroy the surface to create my piece, as Vhils usually does, but also have the opportunity to create my canvas too. 579 more words

Project II - Phase 1: First Impressions

Vhils uses everything from power tools to explosives to paint and acid. Given that Vhils almost solely works in portraiture for his street art, I wanted to chose 3 pieces that he created for separate symbolic messages. 1,128 more words
