Making his mark: Lisbon street artist Vhils

Instead of a paintbrush, Alexandre Farto uses drills and jackhammers to
create large-scale public art that exposes layers of a city's history.
Once seen as a vandal known by his tag, Vhils, he has fueled the
flourishing street art scene in his native Lisbon, Portugal, where
murals have added a colorful touch to the otherwise overlooked or
mundane, and he has transformed buildings in cities around the world by
exposing layers of history.

Amazing - art, history and art therapy (probably) on a grand scale
