Aiming to be a deep reflection on the urban space and its interactions with its inhabitants, “Dissection” takes as a starting point various elements of contemporary cities. Dissection derives from the Latin dissectio, -onis; it is the act of dissecting, of cutting up an inert body in order to study it, to explore and understand the contents which cannot be perceived from a first layer. The artist’s intention is to build a progressive way through several interconnected environments which enables the viewers to experience a unique passage through different dimensions, familiar to the modern urban city (noise, chaos & saturation)

By using his significant unconventional media and destructive techniques which widely recognized him as one of the largest urban art artists, Vhils says: “we are a result of everything that surrounds us, and the walls are comprised of layers of social and political reform Lisbon has undergone. Each city has its own layers and I want to dissect its respective history via my artwork” .
