Street Artist's Vhils Explosive Street Art (VIDEO)

Usually street artists create their work by making an impression on a surface (via painting, pasting or other means), but Portuguese street artist Vhils, Alexandre Farto, makes his mark by destroying the surface of a wall. In this video, you get a slow motion view of the creation of Vhils' recent work. The experimental hip hop track by Orelha Negra provides a soothing counterpoint to the flying detritus caused by the explosions. The end result is beautiful and powerful. What's not to love?
