Blowin' Stuff Up In the Name of Art

Illustration for article titled Blowin Stuff Up In the Name of Art

Alexandre Farto, also known as Vhils, blows stuff up to make art. OK, it requires a lot more precision than that—he actually detonates explosives packed behind plaster and brick to reveal striking representative images and cleanly rendered words. It's pretty amazing. Here you can see the technique in gorgeous slow-mo, scored by a nice tune from Orelha Negra. [Vhils via BoingBoing]

An explosives artist named "Farto". I know it's juvenile, but I could not help but laugh at that.
