For Scratching the Surface the artist named VHILS invests the walls of the city. At first he projects an image onto them and traces its outline. Using chisels, acid, a pneumatic drill, explosives and other methods of this type, he then destroys the various layers of the walls to create sculptures of faces. Specially for Festival Images, VHILS will produce a permanent portrait at the Ex-EPA building.
