Boom Goes the Mural

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

We've seen murals created with traditional paint, airbrush, paper and paste, and even dirt, but Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils takes a different approach.

The Portuguese street artist has been known to take a jackhammer to a wall to create depth, but his most recent work is a little more, well, explosive. Farto doesn't give much insight into what he calls the "precise detonation of plaster and brick," but we can think of a few vacant walls in Phoenix that could use a little excitement, Vhils-style.
