The Vhils Entropie Solo Show is a bold art exhibit exploring the Portuguese artist's street art creations along with a number of other vandalized objects. Entitled 'Vandalism as Creation Through Destruction,' this show aims to prove that the act of vandalism can be used to beautify instead of deface.

Whether using building facades, furniture of structural elements as his canvas, the innovative artist experiments when creating his captivating work. Currently on display at Galerie Magda Danysz in Paris, the Vhils Entropie Solo Show features unique visuals that include intricately executed portraits resembling negative images. These bold art pieces are created with the use of custom cut stencils.

The artist carves, chisels and destroys his canvases before using these newly created details as key elements in his memorable art pieces.
