Stencil History X
5 SEPTEMBER 2008 — 27 SEPTEMBER 2008
And here's a little bit more about September's artists:
Broken Crow - think big murals, giant stencils - he cites his inspirations from comic books, mythology and the vast world between stained glass windows and graffiti.
C215 - separates consensus and subversion, renowned for his studies of the face, taking it as a landscape and putting his images in 'nonplaces'.
Adam5100 - serene, contemplative hyperrealistic stencil pieces made from many layers to create inspired stencil work that commands collectors prices.
Sadhu - the artist cites Banksy, art deco, Mucha and the Cessessionists as his inspiration behind his haunting stencil images.
Koleszar - hails from Gilbert, Arizona and enjoy his urbanscapes and architecture, using layer upon layer on canvas to capture his imagery.
The book, Stencil History X forms the backbone of the show and features 40 stencil artists from Blek le Rat to Banksy, Mis-Tic to Logan Hicks, from Argentina to Asutria, Norway to Brazil - we trace the history of stencil art across Europe and beyond from its firm roots in Paris, France.
