Awesome video for Portuguese experimental hip-hop outfit Orelha Negra by world-class street artist Alexandre Farto - aka Vhils.
Vhils began his career by peeling paper off billboards and street advertisements to create his images. Then he evolved to chipping away at concrete, and experimenting using acids - his work appeared alongside Banksy at the Cans Festival in London in 2008, and he works all over the world. Now Vhils has moved on to a completely new new way of creating his images, using explosives - as demonstrated here in glorious slo-mo.

How he's done it is a mystery, and there's no way its going to come off...
