U2: Raised by Wolves - Portuguese street artist Vhils kicks off Films of Innocence

    A pack of wolves roam the suburbs of Lisbon in U2’s explosive collaboration with Vhils. The political murals of Northern Ireland inspired Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. in the series of filmic couplings with 11 artists hailing from the UK to US, South Africa to Egypt, Belgium to Portugal, inspired by tracks from their polarizing new record Songs of Innocence. Vhils is Alexandre Farto, a young urban vanguard from Lisbon whose creative treatment of neglected bricks and mortar reveals haunting portraits of both political figures and the everyman. Working with U2 and Solid Dogma on “Raised by Wolves,” Farto’s dramatic, slow-motion set pieces were captured in only a day and a half.
