Portugese artist VHILS recently teamed up with Lebasse Projects to create two new murals located in LA’s Chinatown district. The murals are part of their ongoing Contrast Series, which aims to build on the cultural value of local areas and honor their roots. In this behind-the-scenes video, VHILS comments on how images made for Chinatown’s community have a broader significance. “This idea of creating by destroying is, in the end, inherent to all human beings… even the most beautiful poem destroys the white paper.”
