Entropy / Vhils Solo Show Paris

From 23 June, 2012 to 28 July, 2012
Opening 23 June, 2012

Magda Danysz Gallery - 78, rue Amelot - Paris 11

Born in Portugal in 1987, VHILS travels all over the globe to create his monumental works. He was singled out in 2008 by Banksy who invited him to the Cans Festival in London. The art critic Tristan Manco shared at the time « here he is one of the finest examples of world street art from these past few years.” In 2010, he took part to the Sao Paulo Biennial as well as the Fame Festival in Italy and made a huge portrait in collaboration with JR in the center of Los Angeles.

VHILS’s artwork is a revolution in the stencil technique in its use of unusual tools. Through the destruction of walls, he explores the layers of urban space and its history. Old papers, worn out posters, wood panels, brick walls are attacked with chisels, jackhammer, acid, or explosives, in order to sculpt his stencil on the wall. VHILS’s portraits underline an important contrast between new and ancient; he makes visible the inside face of these buildings. VHILS tries to give a new face to the city which is, for him, a ground of popular inspirations.
