Berlin-based gallery Skalitzers Contemporary Art, owned by Australian curator/ dealers Kelly Reiffer and Rory Schmitz, presents the first exhibition in Australia by Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils. Known worldwide for his large scale portraiture and unconventional techniques, Vhils confronts notions of place and identity within the urban environment.
