Louis Lambert is 3TTMAN, or to aid in its proper pronunciation, Trois Têtes Man, the agitador de medio ambiente. As a key presence in the contemporary urban art scene in Madrid, he has formed an aesthetic combining the punk heritage of graffiti, its do-it-yourself, by any means necessary attitude, with a style showing a strong influence of both vernacular, and popular religious art. Working on a plethora of surfaces (from billposters to self-laid concrete), and utilising a myriad of techniques (from ceramics to mosaics), Lambert’s production purposefully blurs the boundary between art and craft, challenging prevailing conceptions of ‘correct’ practice in both the fine and public-art worlds.

Depicting the scenes of the imaginary world and abstract forms of science fiction, Rafael Gerlach aka SatOne creates futuristic graffiti that expresses humanity and emotion through their organic shapes. His interesting approach opens up a new dimension in which graphic design, abstract art and illustration merge into the unified whole. Adopting the story as the most integral part of creativity, his pieces always have something to say. Non-figurative in the essence, whether or not obvious to the viewer, his images seem like captured moments of distorted reality. SatOne’s works have a strong resemblance to the visual forms of Futurism, emphasizing the dynamic interplay of divided surfaces, colors and shades.

Vhils’s art is poetic, complex, and ambitious. He penetrates through countless layers of posters, dirt, and plaster to set free the poetic images hidden beneath urban spaces. This is all done by drilling away old plaster relief forms. Alexandre Farto (Also known as Vhils) was born in 1987 in Portugal. He grew up in the outskirts of Lisbon. He studied at the University of the Arts in London, Central Saint Martins, and Byam Shaw Fine Art Skills and Practices. He was raised in Portugal, during a period that was deeply affected by the revolution at the time. It was then that he witnessed much destruction and the effects of the war on the walls. The Carnation Revolution of 1974 affected the outskirts of Lisbon and other parts of Portugal.

Vhils gained prominence when carved portrait was revealed alongside street artist Banksy at the Cans Festival in London in 2008. Later, Banksy’s agent, Steve Lazarides, gave him additional space to create his street art carvings. Soon after several of his works were published. One of Vhils most popular forms of media is his relief portrait. These portraits are chiseled into plaster and brick walls all over the world. He also creates by dissecting poster ads and excavating walls. Other forms of media include collage, wheat paste, wood, metal, installations, and more. Last but not least, Alexandre Farto is known for using etching acid, bleach, pneumatic drills, and other processes or street art tools to reveal a wall’s layers. read more
