Chipped face

I think I’ve walked past this face on Dray Walk off Brick Lane lots of times without really paying much attention. When you look closely, you can see that the whole face has been chipped out of the wall – it’s pretty amazing.

    This is from the Portuguese artist Vhils ( real name Alexander farto). He is renowned for using a hammer drill to plaster to get the effect he is looking for. It’s only when you get close up do you realise the skill that used.

    There’s a great video for the Levi’s Go Forth campaign Vhils did in Berlin on YouTube (google Vhils Go Forth).
