Stencil Archive News
Thanks to txmx's annual submission massive, Hamburg, DE may be one of the most historically-covered cities here on Stencil Archive. Of course, San Francisco's archives have over 20 years of photo documentation. Thanks to txmx for the photos! (photo at left by txmx, in Hamburg)

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!
The Stencil Archive wouldn't be what it is without all the help and submissions from folks like Paul. Want to submit photos of your own stencils, or those you have discovered? Check out our FAQ, which has an email in there for you to use. You can always conact us too for more information. I appreciate it!
