The international work of Alexandre Farto aka Vhils is another form of street art that I found beautiful yet haunting.

His technique of scratching away the often abandoned buildings seem to leave a haunting homage to the life each building must have housed at some point. The use of further destruction as a form of creation is awe inspiring as you think about the skill each piece must require. 

The stripping away of facades and surfaces to create these mesmerizing portraits further reinforces the feeling of reminding us of what has been lost from these often quite back streets.
