Vandalized Beauty

At 20 years old, Pedro Matos is giving new life to the term 'street art'. Hailing from Portugal, Pedro grew up in the graffiti clad, skateboarding scene and is a self taught artist. What's truly remarkable and fresh is his undeniable photo realistic illustrative skills.
I love how his "grungy" backgrounds acts as a contrast to the very detailed, refined faces of real people. The backgrounds seem to fit in perfectly with each subjects persona and even add a sense of emotion to each.
