What a fascinating mural, seamlessly incorporated into the decaying facade of the abandoned building.

Great mural, bravo Vhils!

The artwork is incredible! Stunning, even. I hope Alexandre Farto gets his work shown in other, more "normal" venues.

It really is a work of art!

This is worthy of a quadruple-take, excellent mural and photo!

I am fascinated by the bridge in the background. The left side looks old and the right side looks new.

I think the artist has been in Stavanger too:)

Even from the thumbnail I recognized this a Vhils, who you introduced me to. Another amazing work. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

I really like the combination of the two photos. It provides context. The second one has a wonderful juxtaposition of images, even the truck in the background. What's that high in Lisbon, the approach to the Tagus bridge?

That is so unique! A very modern and inventive interpretation of bas-relief.

@Bob Crowe: Yes, it's the 25th of April Bridge which connects Lisbon to the south bank of the Tagus River.

Thanks for the link. I was captivated and fascinated by the video entitled "Incision". I got a great sense of both the physical process and the vision driving this extraordinary artist.
