VHILS recently completed a massive chiseled mural located on the facade of the Caniçada Dam in northern Portugal. The portrait portrays a “face inspired by the workers who gave their body and soul to the building of the dam, surrounded by a group of children and tree elements,” as per Arrested Motion. The large-scale artwork was made in collaboration with the Energias de Portugal (EDP) Foundation, a non-profit institution that focuses on sustainable development. The project is a part of EDP’s ongoing artist program that transforms Portuguese dams into stunning, sculptural works of art.

View the immense piece in the gallery above and head over to EDP’s official website to view more projects. In other art stories, New York City’s Skarstedt Gallery is currently hosting a group exhibit with works by KAWS, George Condo, Cindy Sherman, and more.
