FR ARTS: Als FR arbeite ich nun schon seit 2014 im Bereich des Stencil Arts und verarbeite ein weitreichendes Themenspektrum in meinem eigenen Style. Schwerpunkt meiner Arbeiten sind jedoch großformatige Portraits als single- oder multi-layer. Im Folgenden greife ich einige aktuelle Projekte auf und erläutere meinen Gedankengang im Schaffensprozess.
D’abord parce que son terrain d’intervention privilégié est la rue, et ce depuis l’adolescence dijonnaise. Dans le milieu du graffiti en premier lieu, puis dans la sphère de l’art urbain par le biais du pochoir et de l’affiche. Ensuite, parce qu’il s’inscrit en marge de tout académisme qui voudrait qu’un mot soit dans le dictionnaire.
Valérian, or Valé Stencil, is a french street artist born in 1990. Now based in Mexico City after a decade of travel, Valé has developed an aesthetic that combines figurative stencil compositions with pop-graffiti styling, both as murals and canvas artworks. With a strong compassion and belief in human spirit, his works can be seen as a mirror to our common humanity.
Combining various techniques, his work is primarily constructed with numerous layers of hand-cut stencils, painted with a mix of brushes, aerosol cans and markers. Within this practice he combines chaotic shapes on multicolored backgrounds and subtle shading stencils to achieve a sense of photorealism.
Why I am doing this?
Really a lot of people I met in my life asked me why I do it. There were basically so many of them that the question became tiresome. To their surprise, it's not about big ideas, content promotion, or sympathizing with any political option.
Painting street art is sport. Extreme sport This is art for art's sake. When you ask Tony Hawk why he is riding a skateboard, he will probably scratch his head and say that he just loves it. The same applies to me. A long time ago I fell into a terrible addiction to adrenaline and since then I paint at night. It is very addictive. It sits in my head and must come out. I am an exemplary citizen by day. I pay taxes, I'm punctual and help my neighbor bring heavy shopping bags upstairs. At night I run away from the police and get into a fight while painting.
I'm mainly a stencil artist. The inspiration for my work comes from fashion photography, models and fashion magazines. I mostly choose portraits of female models and transform them into colourful stencil graffiti, paintings or drawings. Moreover, sunny and light places, like Ibiza, Formentera or Mykonos, inspire my choice of colours. I almost never use black. I prefer seeing my work in the streets of the aforementioned islands or cities like Barcelona, London, etc. I am especially fond of decaying or rough concrete walls in dilapidated surroundings which are already painted with graffiti or hidden places, like concrete stairs, rough wooden doors, unfinished hotel ruins or boats sheds. I just love to make those places more colourful with my stencil graffiti and paste-ups.
Craig Tinsky is an innovative visual artist raised in Miami and living in Washington DC. His methods push the medium of papercut art resulting in works that look like paintings, screen prints, etchings, and photographs. Drawing inspiration from black and white photography as well as digital pixelation, Craig created a style called Ribbon-Halftone. He cuts meticulously measured and shaped choppy, wavy ribbons into sheets of paper, producing portraits so similar to photographs that they appear to show tiny details such as individual hairs and faint facial wrinkles. Upon close inspection, there seem to be no sharp or even discernible images.

Over the course of several years, I adapted my style and workflow so I could bring a vision to the streets but on a timeline more aligned to my creative strengths. This started with several wheat-paste projects, media installations, and ultimately the evolution of my primary focus: stenciling.
B.D. White entered the art scene by painting hundreds of streetlight bases throughout New York City. Despite his spinal injury, he earned a reputation as a prolific street artist using spray paint and stencils as his main medium.
The Toddot universe is populated with lovers and wanderers. They are seekers of visions and are searchers of truths. They are dreamers who cling tightly to their hopes, and sometimes too tightly to their fears. They are broken beings that are searching for love and acceptance rather than just yearning to be fixed. My art seeks to include the outsider, give hope for the downtrodden and to champion the underdog.
