At long last, Serbia just got a great upload to the Stencil Archives, thanks to art historian and sometimes tour guide Srđan Tunić. Srđan just submitted a nice stack of photos, all from Belgrade where he is part of Street Art Walks Belgrade. As always, Stencil Archive appreciates and thrives off of your submissions and participation. 

We'd never be able to do it without you!

Stencil Archive at 20: Artist Weblinks Updated

Submitted by russell on Thu, 06/16/2022 - 12:57

Tip of the hat to Prez with Highlife magazine for contacting the Stencil Archive with a simple note, "many artists links are dead". After years of not wanting to grind through updating the artists weblinks, Peter's hope to use the links for a project greased the gears. 

Spending many hours this week reviewing and revising the Stencil Archive artists weblinks felt like a digital archeology dig.
