Pixel Pancho and Vhils Collaborate on the Streets of Lisbon | Colossal

Pixel Pancho and Vhils Collaborate on the Streets of Lisbon | Colossal | Community Art | Scoop.it

Italian artist Pixel Pancho was recently invited by Underdogs to create a number of murals and other interventions in Lisbon, Portugal. One of my favorite pieces was this awesome collab with street artistVhils (previously), known for his instantly recognizable “subtractive” style of etching imagery into walls. The steampunkish android holding a derelict boat was placed on a building next to the the Tagus river near where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Images courtesy Underdogs and Miguel Vinagre.
