The Honey Bear Hunt map is now live at fnnch.com/honeybearhunt!
I am also releasing a limited number of new Hunt Kits on my website — both a Pride Bear Hunt and Ally Bear Hunt.
How to Play
The goal of the hunt is to provide a safe way to get out of your house and enjoy art during COVID times. There’s no "winning" or "losing" — this is just for fun. If you feel so inclined, take photos of bears at tag them #HoneyBearHunt so I and others can see!
I cannot guarantee that you will find a bear at every pin — some folks put them in a back window, and I am sure some people will be spoilsports and put them up inside. But over 2000 people opted to have their location on the…
StencilArchive.org has seen other shared stencils images of George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor, on the stencil subreddit. We were glad to come across Twin Cities artist Seitu Jones' #Blues4George project, since Jones includes templates and instructions for a simple or multi-color stencil portrait. Go to Jones' site for more details, and to download a pdf how-to via Google Drive.
From aspiring breakdancer to accomplished artist, Ian Kuali’i traces his path so far
May 7th, 2020, 5:30PM / BY Justin Mugits, for Smithsonian Magazine
Artist Ian Kuali’i (Kanaka Maoli [Native Hawaiian] and Shis Inday [Mescalero Apache]) is known both for his cut-paper work and for his background in hip hop and graffiti. Ian visited the National Museum of the American Indian in New York last October as part of our Artist in the Galleries series, where he presented demonstrations of his art and answered visitors’ questions about it. He was scheduled to take part in our Children’s Festival during Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month this May, leading collaborative mural painting. After the Children’s Festival was postponed, I took the opportunity to talk to Ian about his influences as an artist and his evolution from aspiring breakdancer to…Read more
Buy your own Banksy stuff at Gross Domestic Product! Some of it is actually affordable, drawn by children, benefits charity, and funny. The site states that the pillows (see photo) are stenciled, but you'll get whatever they find at the thrift store.
Speaking of funny, it is worth it to read the legal disclaimer and terms and conditions. Ahem...
This site asserts the trademark to Banksy’s name and images is held by the artist, and is not transferable to any third party.

TXMX in Hamburg just informed the Stencil Archive of the death of Robi the Dog (his Stencil Archive). Swiss artist Robi the Dog pasted up intriguing, surreal, and humorous stencils throughout Hamburg, Berlin and other parts of Europe. He died late August of 2016 at the age 37/38. In an interview with streetartbln.com, Robi the Dog stated that he got into street art in 2006, and was interested in giving as much art to the people by "exercising his right to change the environment that he lived in". Stencil Archive extends its sympathies to the friends and family of Robi the Dog, as well as to all of those whole admired his…Read more

Over the weekend, fnnch [Stencil Archive album], best known for his depictions of honey bears, ladybugs, seashells, flamingos and turtles, fastened 450 pieces to utility poles between Market and…Read more
Light artist, and my sometimes show director, Christine Marie sent me a video of Rich McCor's hilarious and creative use of perspective and cut paper art. "It's like a stencil in the sky," she wrote with the shared video. McCor is better known as @paperboyo on Instagram, and his whimsy has made me smile a few times this week.
In the past few weeks, between the downpours of rain, RIP ORFN tags have appeared all over San Francisco. Aaron Curry, aka ORFN, died in December after a quick, lost battle with cancer. While mostly running with the BKF and US crews, Curry's span of activity dates back to the 1990s. His tags and throws were stylish and quick; his characters were funny and easy to spot all over the Bay Area. He went large and small, and even dabbled in cutting stencils and painting sidewalks in the Mission as HUNGRY WAIF. Around five weeks ago, Curry's friend Mark Cross…Read more
