Hello Stencil Citizens,
Russell here from StencilArchive.org (http://www.stencilarchive.org ). If you have never heard of Stencil Archive, it is a web site that I created in 2002 to cover the international stencil art phenomenon. I have been photographing stencils since 1995, made them since 1998, and currently have over 7,000 stencil photographs (many of them are my own photos) represented on Stencil Archive.
But this call for art and content is not for the web site. I am working on a book titled â€œStencil Nation: Graffiti, Community, and Artâ€ which will published in Spring 2008 by Manic D Press. I am hoping that the community will step up and help me present the amazing scene(s) that have grown around stencil art in the past five years. While recent books feature stencils on and off the streets, Stencil Nation hopes to represent not only the artists and activists who cut and spray but also represent the other parts of the community that make our nation a culture unto itself.
I have 7 different areas of the book that need development. You may fit one or more of the below categories of our community, so I encourage you to tell me more about yourself and be a part of the Stencil Nation project.
Thanks for helping out. If any of this is confusing, please feel free to contact me.
