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

There is a stencil and graffiti tradition of memorializing people who have been senselessly killed, usually for unjust reasons. Jairo Mora Sandoval, a Costa Rican environmentalist, his likeness is pictured in the above photo, is now becoming an icon for those who hold the flora and fauna of the planet dear. Go here to read more about Sandoval's assassination.
Here are some other people, senselessly killed, who have lived on as stencil icons:
Oscar Grant, killed by BART police in Oakland, CA (while face down on the ground)
Brad Will, killed by police in Oaxaca, MX (while filming a protest)
Nour Zahra, killed while protesting the dictatorship in Syria

The Colab Gallery presents the fifth edition of Public Provocations. It combines various styles, disciplines and techniques of Urban Art. Nine artists from all over the world will be providing insight into their creative work. Every single artist is unique, and the exhibition will be as extraordinary as each exceptional piece of work is. Public Provocations – a cross section of current works of the urban art scene.
The Stencil Archive presents a special upload for Turkey, which is seeing a massive swell of public street protests that are being violently answered by the government and police. Like most uprising hotspots, street art allows people to have a free, simple voice. Stencils have been part of art in the streets for years in Turkey (I feature a Turkish stencil in my 2008 book Stencil Nation), but I will scour the Internet and upload new ones when I find them.
