Alexander Farto is one artist who definitely knows that creation, and thus art, is a byproduct of even the most destructive of forces.

Through the use of controlled and carefully directed explosives, Alexander Farto turns walls into artistic statements that are altogether different than the origins of the materials used to make them. Whereas explosives and detonations are traditionally linked to destruction and chaos, Farto uses them to create beautiful images that speak to a different side of humanity: love, beauty and creation.

Alexander Farto creates his artwork by carefully embedding explosives just below the surface of walls, and while the process does involve some volatile ingredients, it is anything but random or chaotic. The result of his efforts are in fact poignant and captivating pieces that go well beyond their humble origins.
