This video from 2011 was fun to watch again. Animated cut-out street art in Turkey!
A few weeks ago, Stencil Archive got secure via Let's Encrypt! and the mad minds at Mission Web Works. This means that the site is now https, with a padlock beside the website name in your browser. Going secure, we had to begin to update all our links, which don't like embedded files from non-secure http sites.
We focused on videos the past few days and they're all updated and ready for some deep watching. Our video links go all the way back to 2007, when Flash ruled and resolution was a bit lower. And there wasn't much content protected by https.
We've gone all the way back to the first video post and attempted to fix all the links. Where video links were broken, replacement videos were posted, other sources of the video were found, or the whole post was deleted. So poke around and you may find some new stencil goodness.
Sometimes stencil-maker and alltimes artist/activist David Solnit talks us through a great how-to on making awesome, hand-made protest banners. Though there are no stencils being made in this video (There are stencils available for May 2016 Keep It In The Ground campaign by Cesar Maxit), David's belief that ANYONE can do what he's doing is one reason Stencil Archive is alive and still sharing stencil art with the world. It's a fun, grass roots, personal thing that you all can easily do. And it is creative!
Genie catches up with an old friend – Dutch street art pioneer Hugo Kaagman – at his home in Amsterdam and in Hemonylaan, where we see some of his recent street art.

Stencil Archive doesn't recommend making your own Banksy stencil. These are decent instructions, and the hardest part is always thinking up the idea and cutting it out. That's also the fun part!
Regan Tamanui, master stencilist (see his Archive here) and the nicest man on the planet, had a camera follow him around. Spend any time with HAHA and you will hear amazing theories about (sur)reality. While he was here in SF, we had a great discussion about giants, bigfoots, and how sporting events (the 49ers were in the Super Bowl) are feed troughs for aliens. I made sure he saw the UFO murals sprinkled around, and got him a few walls to get up on.
