Extraordinary Street Art Collaboration by Pixel Pancho and Vhils


In a recent collaboration, street artists Pixel Pancho and Vhils combined their unique styles to paint a mural located in Lisbon, Portugal. Mingling their different sensibilities, their combined image features a Steampunk android that’s composed of gears, nuts, bolts, and cloaked in a man’s face. He’s holding a broken boat, and it’s unclear whether or not he will empty his toy into the nearby Tagus river. This highly illustrative and eye-catching mural features Vhils’ signature subtractive style, in which he plays with the decay and dilapidation of a building to work it into something extraordinary. We see here how the exposed brick and cement has been chipped away to create a fully realized form.

Pixel Pancho and Vhils’ were invited to collaborate by the Underdogs Public Art Project. Based in Lisbon, Underdogs aims at creating a place within the contemporary art scene for those who work with their outdoor environment. The organization provides a great public service by giving the average urban dweller access to engaging street art on a daily basis.
