Vhils and Urban Outfitters Exeter

It's been a while since I added to this blog, now with the Urban Outfitters building work completed and open I thought I'd post a few photo's of the Vhils work on it's side without the hoarding up.

Interview with the artist which is illustrated with a few of my photo's of Vhils in action up on Urban Outfitters website...

Vhils in Exeter Day 4

Final day.

Towards the end the response from the public was amazing, lots of photo's being taken, people stopping and staring and positive comments being made, although there were a few people who were vehemently against it but in the 3 days being there I only heard 3, a very small percentage.

I must say Vhils and the rest of his team were top blokes, a pleasure spending a little time in their company. They're off to Nuart Festival in Norway next then work to do in Miami and Buenos Aires, we are indeed privileged to have work like this in Exeter.

There is an interview with the artist (illustrated with some of my photo's) now up on Urban Outfitters website...

The final set of photo's....

These last three shots were taken Saturday 24th September

Vhils in Exeter Day 2

After the outline today's job was starting to drill out the black areas into relief. This time I had my DSLR to document it, I'll be returning tomorrow also and perhaps Thursday until it's completed.

Here's today's photo's...

The first few excavations

A long shot, really shows it's prominence in the High Street, but when finished it'll look a little more subtle

 How it looked when the team went for late lunch...

Vhils (Alexandre Farto) the internationally renowned Portuguese street artist has been commissioned to do a piece on the side of what will become Urban Outfitters in Exeter, not sure if this is finished, he usually carves the work into the wall using a pneumatic drill, so this could just be the outline?
Excuse the photo quality, grey day and iPhone photo's...

See No Evil - Bristol

On Sunday I went to Nelson Street in Bristol which has been transformed by street art and graffiti for the See No Evil project. The quality and scale was stunning. Featuring artists not only from Bristol but worldwide

Here's a few photo's...
