Aren’t these wall portraits absolutely wonderful? I am a fan of old painted advertising on the sides of buildings. I always try to catch a shot of them when I see them in town. They are ordinarily signs of the times in which they were created. These wall portraits are something I have not seen before. They are the work of London based artist Alexandre Farto. He is the Michelangelo of the urban wall. The faces are expertly rendered. It will surely make you stop and reflect upon the face on the wall.
I would love to have something like this on an interior brick wall. Talk about a converstion piece. Additional photos of his wall work are available here.
