Helmed by Felipe Pantone, the contemporary artist known for his combination of graffiti, kinetic design and use of bold color and glitch effects, Configurable Art and VHILS have released works which tap the Portuguese street artist’s graffiti aesthetic in a piece created from etched wood. VHILS, aka Alexandre Manuel Dias Farto, is known for his bas-relief carving technique and subsequent “Scratching the Surface” project. For the Configurable Art showcase, VHILS chisels his craft once again to deliver a number of abstract portrait sections.
Combining traditional graffiti-inspired laser and drill-etched pieces comprised of 15 unique sections, the special guest experience is active between April 8 and May 8, 2019 on the Configurable Art website. Allowing visitors to create their own piece inspired by the two world-renowned artists, you can build your own Configurable Art x VHILS artwork and create something truly one-of-a-kind.
