Vhils in Fremantle.....


It's not often that something stops me in my tracks but as we rounded the corner on South Terrace in Fremantle there it was... on the wall of the  Norfolk Hotel.. an amazing piece of street art with a difference by world renowned Portuguese artist Vhils. What made the unexpected discovery all the more exciting was that only a few weeks ago JM in Lisbon sent me the above link and I thought how fantastic it would be to have some of his work here in Perth..  lo and behold, not quite in Perth but this piece that he created for the Fremantle Street Art Festival earlier in the year is close enough, maybe Perth will get lucky next time :) I would have loved to see him in action! Happy Monday, or Sunday depending where you are, take care.....To see more murals from around the world click  here.

  3. In answer to your question, no, I've never seen him at work... Would you believe if I tell you the first work I saw was in London? :-) http://mendoncajose.blogspot.pt/2011/04/bernie-made-off.html

  15. The color of that building could be in Lisbon. I like the way the face seems to burst out of the building.

  17. Wow. How terrific. It would have made me stop too Grace. Street Art has really come into its own over the last 10 years. I do so admire talented artists painting "official" street art on walls. I do so condone the mindless tagging on public spaces and private property.

  19. Very impressive work, and so beautiful! The artist gave a wonderful expression to those eyes!

  20. That is stunning. But I can't figure out if the artist just applied paint or if there is some surface sculpting too... maybe the surface was already that way and he just found a way to use it.
