Just hearing the sad news via Instagram, that artist and all-around lovable gruff, Klutch, has passed on to larger walls and bluer skies.
10/08/61 to 06/08/23 03:47am. Rest in Power. It is with the greatest sadness, relief, and honor that I share with the world that our friend Klutch has passed. He joined the energy that surrounds us incredibly peacefully this morning. Thank you to every single person who…
Just got word that Chris Stain (his Stencil Archive), long-time supporter of this project, has posted up his helpful and informative book "Stencil Printmaking: History / Info / How To" as a free pdf download.
This caused us to revisit the 2002 conversation we had with him, where we discussed stencils, screen printing, other bits and pieces. That old post has gone through more than one website upgrade, so we just refreshed and revised it to add on to this post about his free book download.
Here is the Justseeds page with a few photos of the book, and the link for the download.
Keeping up with street art and stencil books gets a bit overwhelming, especially when a search on Amazon for "stencil graffiti books" gets a few direct hits, along with books about tattoos, comic art, and yet another book trying to make money off of Banksy.
Today, an upcoming book by C215 (here is his Stencil Archive) caught our eye on social media, mostly because it is a how-to book that appears to be made with love and full of tips, encouragement, artist stories, and all that other funs stuff Stencil Archive loves to share and spread around.Read more

Miss.Tic, whose provocative work began cropping up in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris in the mid-80s and made her a pioneer of French street art, died on Sunday at 66, her family told AFP.
Radhia Novat grew up in the narrow streets in the shadow of Sacré-Cœur basilica, the daughter of a Tunisian father and a mother from Normandy in western France, where she began stencilling sly and emancipatory slogans. Her family said…Read more
"This started with a vision of going beyond making just a mural. I wanted to make an environment where people could forget they were in the middle of the city - even if only for a minute." ~ Logan Hicks

In the middle of 2020, during the height of the pandemic in New York City, Logan Hicks was commissioned to creatively re-…Read more
BÄST, NEW YORK ORIGINAL, IN MEMORIAM
May 6, 2021
Jaime Rojo, Brooklyn Street Art (Original Link)
(Photo: Stencil Archive caught this BÄST tag stencil in Brooklyn, Fall of 2003)
His wit is what we’ll miss the most! BÄST (Stencil Archive LINK) took no statement so seriously that he couldn’t satirize it – including ones that came from your mouth. A sweet-faced wiseguy with sartorial style, his illustrations on the street at once celebrated and skewered popular culture, codes of behavior, and our presumed…
The Honey Bear Hunt map is again live at fnnch.com/honeybearhunt. Only Kits shipped in 2021 are on the map, so you should have a good chance of seeing one if you track it down! If you put up a Kit in 2020 and would like it to remain on the map, please fill out this form.
Thank you everyone for your patience awaiting this map. This year we have shipped Hunt Kits to 47 states, 18 countries and 5 continents.
Kits are now always available on store.fnnch.com and ship out twice a week!
Today I am relaunching the Honey Bear Hunt. The bears are better quality, and I am asking everyone to keep them up for at least 3 months and appear on the map. Hunt Kits are now available on store.fnnch.com, and more will be released every Wednesday.
What Is the Honey Bear Hunt?
The idea is for people to put Mask Bears in their windows so neighbors can walk around and spot them. This is a fun, safe activity for individuals, couples, and families.
I launched it last May, and it exceeded my wildest expectations — we have now shipped over 12,000 Hunt Kits to all 50 states and 5 continents!
As COVID rates have soared, much of the country has locked down again, restricting movement and closing galleries and museums. The Honey…Read more
