Since 2002, your old-school website for all things stencils. StencilArchive.org is a home for 1000s of photographs, videos, and more. This site has been DIY from day one. All donations/support directly pay the bills for hosting and updating this site.
You may have noticed that the Stencil Archive photo albums have not been updated in a while. This doesn't mean that we haven't been collecting images from around the world. This just means that the Archives are the older part of the website, and uploading images was based on Adobe Flash. Now that Flash is completely obsolete, our Archives are in the slow, very slow, process of being redesigned. They still work for viewers like you, but uploading new images is offline at the moment.
Finding an image on a movie, show, or in a comic, would go into the "Stencils in Media" Archive. Since our uploading capability is down, here is a fun one from today by Wayno and Piraro, the sharp creators of the Bizarro daily strip. As soon as we get the Archives going again, it'll be there too.
MRSN is a Los Angeles based street artist who works predominantly with stencils and spray paint. She discovered her passion for stenciling in her middle school art class, but really started creating in her early twenties.
Composition is our religion, we work hard in defining the best drawing for any given space. We develop our geometric compositions directly on the surface by creating a huge stencil with tape, this allows us to create shapes that adapt perfectly to the place they are supposed to be. There is a huge thinking behind every single shape we draw.
