His impressive outdoor efforts were set upon the backdrop of Resplendent Semblance, an exhibition of gallery work hosted by Maxwell Colette Gallery.

Streets: Conor Harrington x Vhils (Lisbon)

Reminiscent of the fantastic JR x Vhils collaboration we witnessed in LA during the Eurotrash invasion last year, it looks like Vhils has busted out his tools again and has hooked up with another street artist for a project. As you know from our feature his recent piece in Lisbon, Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) was in town and apparently also put up this piece with some of Vhils’ special techniques although the effects weren’t as evident as the JR collab, perhaps since it was not as […]

Openings: Steal from Work – ‘Flogging a Dead Horse’ @ The Showroom, Bristol

People wandering in were impressed by original canvases by the likes of Banksy, Hirst, […]
