Guten Silvester: Mini-Upload to the Archive

Just a short upload to the archive before heading out into the freezing, bombarding streets of Berlin for a cold/loud hello to 2009.

The rest of the stencils pics from Florence and Vicenza

Som pics from Herzog's show in Vicenza (with some street work too)

and a small upload of Kaos's from Philly, PA, USA.....

Year 7 of Stencil Archive begins in under 4 hours! See ya then......

Uploads for the New Year: Va Bene!

Happy Holla-Daze(d) to one and all. I'm sure most of you have a winter ritual to experience. Well, here's one big old stencil photo upload from yours truly, just in time for all the festive treats that may be in store for you this winter. Grab a warm beverage, cozy up to the computer, and click on through for maximum enjoyment......

tra la la..... Russell

Small and large updates from the USA:


And some blasts from the Euro Zone

And EU artists:

Yes indeed.... many pics speak volumes of words....

UPDATE: Euro Zone: Mini-Tour for January 2009

Early Dec., the good graces of stencildom gifted me a ticket to the EU. I took the opportunity, while in the middle of the Southeast USA tour, to begin putting feelers out for doing the Stencil Nation Book Presentation in as many places as I could work out. Feelers are still out, but some hooks have been snagged:

EU Stencil Nation Book January Mini-Tour (with DJ/VJ Podinski)

  • 8 Thu     assoonas gallery, Wohlersallee 48, Hamburg, DE (8 pm presentation; Podinski will not be at this stop)
  • 14 Wed  Neurotitan, Berlin, DE (9 pm presentation; 10:30 pm after party downstairs @ Eschschloraque)

  • 22 Thu   Zeitvertrieb, Wien, AT (7 pm presentation; after party follows with special guest Dieter Puntigam)

The amazing DJ/VJ Podinski will also appear at these presentations, dishing out his multi-kulti treats. DJ/VJ Podinski is a psychomedia analyst with XLTerrestrials.org, an arts + praxis think tank developing radical hybrid organisms for immediate and unmediated fecundity. XLt work has been featured at festivals, conferences and venues such as Next 5 Minutes, Ars Electronica, Transmediale, 24C3, Roxy/NoD, Pergamon Museum, Kulturbrauerei and Club der Polnische Versager.

More info TBA as it comes along (other gigs in the works: Bratislava, Graz, Hamburg, and maybe Romania) Any leads or advice would be greatly appreciated!

PS: photo upload coming very soon! Just in time for Xmas...... PROMISE!
