Recap of my exhibition “Debris – Macao”. It was planned to end on 5 November but due to the destruction caused by typhoon Hato on 23 August we were unfortunately obliged to close it earlier. I would like to thank once again all the people who who visited the exhibition, the Macao Cultural Affairs Bureau, the Consulate-General of Portugal in Macau and Hong Kong, the Casa de Portugal em Macau, the Oriente Foundation, HOCA Foundation, Unicer / Super Bock, and all those who gave their support towards its production. I would also like to commend the resilience of Macao and its inhabitants, to whom I extend my solidarity and hopes for a speedy recovery. Thanks to ICM, Consulado Geral de Portugal em Macau e Hong Kong, CPM, Fundação Oriente @hocafoundation And @superbock 📸 Photos by @fernandogguerra @josepandolucas @nunovelosophotography / #climatechange #vhils #streetart #graffiti #urbanart #macao #icm #art #contemporaryart

Piece created in Estarreja, Portugal, in the scope of the @estau_estarrejaarteurbana | Estarreja Arte Urbana festival. Portrait of Ms Florinda who, together with her husband, Mr Rola, form the last couple who employ traditional farming methods in the cultivation of rice in Esteiro de Salreu, a landscape in the Aveiro Ria which today is protected as National Ecological Reserve and National Agricultural Reserve.
A piece that speaks of memory and cultural identity of the places and the people who live in them but which also aims to reflect on and alert to the tenuous balance that exists between the various elements that give life to complex ecosystems of this kind, where the extinction of an active part of this interaction between cultural and natural heritage puts at risk its immense wealth and delicate biodiversity.
Peça criada em Estarreja, Portugal, no âmbito do festival ESTAU | Estarreja Arte Urbana. Retrato de D. Florinda que, junto com o marido, Sr. Rola, formam o último casal a empregar métodos de agricultura tradicional no cultivo do arroz no Esteiro de Salreu, uma paisagem na Ria de Aveiro hoje protegida como Reserva Ecológica Nacional e Reserva Agrícola Nacional.
Uma peça que nos fala de memória e identidade cultural dos lugares e das pessoas que os habitam, mas que também visa reflectir sobre e alertar para o ténue equilíbrio existente entre os vários elementos que dão vida a ecossistemas complexos deste tipo, onde a extinção de parte activa desta interacção entre património cultural e património natural põe em risco a sua imensa riqueza e sensível biodiversidade.

My 'Imprint' solo exhibition at CAFA Art Museum in Beijing (30 June – 23 July) shot by one of my favourite photographers. Photos from the installation inside the museum and the wall piece at the Embassy of Portugal in Beijing. Huge thanks to 📸 @fernandogguerra . “Rooted in the visual narrative that Vhils has been presenting on walls since starting his Scratching the Surface project in 2007, Imprint is a unique installation featuring the use of a single medium—the author's signature bas-relief wall carving technique.
Comprising some 70 portraits in total, the exhibition is a pivotal statement that seeks to expand on the fundamental premise behind this project: the act of working with the city itself as the prime material while focusing on the concept of reciprocal shaping by which both the city and its citizens develop a shared character. Imprint is both an analytical look at the characteristics of contemporary urban life and a poetic gesture highlighting the transformation of identity at the heart of this new chapter in human development.” Excerpt from the text by Miguel Moore.
