When we were in Stavanger, Norway for Nuart 2011, one of the most impressive artists that we met was Vhils, the Portuguese fine artist who created this incredible indoor installation of duel skulls. In a decaying, beautilful old brewery, Vhils and crew carved out this piece right out of the wall. And, there were some great street pieces as well...
