Welcome to StencilArchive.org, 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.

Thanks so much - Russell
Hey this is Leon Rainbow. I'm part of an arts collective called
albuscav.us. We are organizing a street art festival in New Bruinswick,
New Jersey. We are looking for artists, as well as supporters,
sponsors, and volunteers. If you run an arts site please post the blow
"call for artists". If you know artists or are an artist please spread
A few people have asked Stencil Archive for tips and info on spray painting stencils on t-shirts.
Some tips I've given them are mostly screen printing tips:
- use a flat palate (piece of wood, glass, or even marble) to keep the shirt flat
- make a mark in the middle of the palate so you can center your shirt
- maybe use spray tack to keep the shirt from moving
- put the shirts out in the sun or in the dryer to cure the paint
- if you want tight lines, practice improves your skills
i'm wondering if you know of anyone who's had success using a squeeze
bottle to deliver a paint concoction (for inside use- less noise)...
please let me know what you do on this matter.
Process Invisible, Results Are Visual. New work by Klutch and Ashley
Montague plus a poster/sticker installation featuring street artists
from around the world.
"the internet's largest collection of stencil graffiti images and information"
Well, not really (thanks to Stencil Rev), but it is the largest in the USA!
