A&T Group Interiors recently delivered the full interior fit-out works for F.R.N.D.S. Grand Cafe, a visually stimulating restaurant and lounge in Downtown Dubai.
Within the restaurants dining area, guests are treated to a striking form of visual poetry, a five-meter tall “bas-relief” carving on the wall by world-renowned Portuguese artist VHILS. The impressive artwork forms a visual focal point for dinners at the venue.
Created by world-renowned Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto using his groundbreaking bas-relief carving technique, the artwork exposes what lies beyond the superficiality of things, making visible the invisible and restoring meaning and beauty to the discarded dimensions buried beneath.
The artist literally digs into the surface layers by etching and carving into the wall to extract and expose different layers using drills, hammers, chisels and knives, like a contemporary urban archaeologist.
Since 2005, VHILS has presented his work in over 30 countries around the world in solo and group exhibitions, site-specific art interventions, artistic events and projects in various contexts.
His unique approach and artworks have been garnering critical acclaim around the globe and now his signature carving technique can be viewed right here in Downtown Dubai at F.R.N.D.S Grand Cafe.
