Chisel face by Vhils

By far my favourite work at the Cans Festival, Leake Street, Waterloo.
While Banksy et al were great the work by Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) is something special. Chiseled into the plaster and bricks this work is part of his Scratching the Surface project.
Destroyed just a few hours after it appeared I'm glad I was able to record it.
