Stencil Marks the Spot w. Mona Caron

Submitted by russell on Thu, 01/19/2017 - 08:16

I had a fun evening helping Mona Caron cut out the stencil she designed for this mural. We had tried before. A while back, I was going to cut/paint another stencil for another public art project of hers, but the muraled utility box was taken off the streets before the stencil could get painted. In the best way, these utilitarian stencils allow the viewer of the mural to see it at its best angle. Mona painted this ribwort plaintain weed in a way that makes it look flat on an unflat surface. Watch the video, and the stencil marks the spot to stand and see the magic!

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…

David Solnit Makes Protest Banners (Video)

Submitted by russell on Sat, 04/09/2016 - 10:28

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!

How To Tutorial (Video)

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!
