David Solnit Makes Protest Banners (Video)

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!

The Funny Man - A Short Film on HAHA (Video)

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.

ART WAR: Doc on Egyptian Art Protest Free Streaming

The folks distributing the doc ART WAR are giving away streaming versions of the video until tomorrow (Sunday). Free access may only be for certain countries. As always, stencils are in the mix and always an effective tool for "street newspaper" tactics.

Art is a weapon! This motto still holds true in Cairo. After 30 years of autocracy, President Mubarak was swept away by his people. Now the street belongs to them, the young rebels and artists. Graffiti sprayers and painters make the walls speak. They recount the days of fighting in blood-smeared portraits, the time of anarchy in wild collages, the attempts of liberation from a suppressed sexuality in obscene pictures.
