Banksy's shredding prank worked in rehersals, but still punked the elite art-collecting world IRL.

I'm the vessel, but the message is kept pure by inviting the viewer to interpret. Is it unsettling or beautiful? Tasteful or crass? Reverent or blasphemy? Or, everything at once, all the time?

Adey is a french artist from Normandy. She's a member of the WCA team since 2008, when she discovered the "polychrome double stencil" beside Artiste Ouvrier.
Her artwork is between realism and onirism, either colorfull, either melted into the landscape, always full of vitality and sweetness.

Stencil Archive is wandering the streets of Paris this Solstice week. We are posting our "best of" as soon as we can on social media (see links above) and then attempting to get batches of street work out soon after. Artist work will come a bit later this month (coming soon: Smile, Mimi the Clown, and Miss.Tic to name a few)
