Alexandre Farto’s “Reverse Graffiti”

From 5osA:

Call it street art, call it reverse graffiti, or call it architectural sculpture – whatever it is, Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto‘s portrait series is mesmerizing and fascinating. Farto has been interested in street art since he was 13 years old and now this 23 year old artist has taken up scratching faces into the facades of buildings all around the world. These architectural embellishments, or rather subtractions, are hauntingly beautiful and created using jackhammers, picks and hammers.
