Welcome to StencilArchive.org, redesigned for your mobile devices.
Stencil Archive is home for thousands of photographs, videos, etc. from the stencil-loving community and has been sharing negative space since 2002. How can you support this site (beyond submitting pics, videos, etc.)?
- Take a San Francisco tour. Two to choose from.
- BUY an autographed copy of my out-of-print book "Stencil Nation" while supplies last.
- Donate any amount to keep Stencil Archive alive.
Thanks so much - Russell

I have been asked to take over at BEAUTIFUL CRIME , and so I have invited a DIRTY DOZEN of new artists on the site.. We thought it was time to step things up a notch and also to get something NEW and DYNAMIC going on.. As it is going with artists this might turn out to be the DIRTY SIXTEEN or the DIRTY TWENTY FOUR we'll see...
Great profile for Adam5100 on Spark's website. There is also a great PDF link for an education guide on stencil art on that page.
"Introduce students to the history of graffiti and stenciling. This Educator Guide discusses Aboriginal art practices and includes hands-on activities related to political printmaking and a critical writing assignment."
Spark airs tomorrow, Wed. April 18 @ 7:30pm (with another viewing later in the week).
Absolute LAST day to do taxes here in USA. So why not protest the war machine one last financial time with the freshest uploads from around the world:
A few from Haight St. here in San Francisco for good tax-resisting measure!
53% of each American's tax dollars goes to the Pentagon and its war machine. This DOESN'T include the extra funding for Iraq and Afghanistan (which is about $100 billion a year extra!).

Joshua Kinberg's internet-connected, sidewalk-printing graffiti bike
got him a lot of attention ahead of the 2004 Republican National
Convention; he was Boing Boinged, Slashdotted and featured on CNN and
in Popular Science.
Though he didn't know it at the time, his gadget also landed him a spot
in secret files being compiled by the New York Police Department's
intelligence arm against protest groups across the country.
