Vhils at Woolfest (yes, wool)

Vhils recently chiseled a wall in Covilhã, Portugal for Wool, an urban art festival in a town which has been closely tied to the wool and textile industry since the industrial revolution. The organizers of Wool say “With this piece VHILS wants to talk about the desertification of the interior of Portugal, which appears to be irreversible and portray the reality that we live in a territory with a population growing older, ‘where the cuts and the current measures are felt even more hardness and where most of young people are future opportunities and are forced to seek them elsewhere, either on the coast or abroad’.”
