VHILS carved murals of evicted tenants in Shanghai

A mural created by VHILS is seen among demolished houses in Huangpu district, Shanghai, China, 12 February 2012. The Portuguese street artist VHILS and his team recently descended upon Shanghai to do their sculpture-cum-portraiture thing, on the walls of a few unnamed residences currently being demolished. For his work in Shanghai, VHILS uses the portraits of evicted tenants as a template for murals carved on the crumbling walls of houses being destroyed. The resulting murals serve as temporary tributes to forgotten tenants, many of whom mostly fight in vain to keep their homes.
