Book Review: Vhils

Street artist Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) has been on our radar for quite sometime. Unfortunately for us here stateside, the elusive street artist rarely makes the jump over (so infrequently in fact, the last time we saw his work in person was in San Diego at the Viva la Revolucion show seen here.) It comes then as a welcome surprise to see a new monograph of the artist's work, recently released by Gestalten.

The self titled debut is the first such book of Vhils' work and explores not just the artists outdoor chiseled portraits for which he's known for here in the states, but also a comprehensive look at his past works including his multimedia videos and sculptural boxes, which have been taking the EU and UK by storm the past few years and are a pleasant treat to finally see. Get a look inside the new release after the jump.
