I’ve been enjoying the streetart and graffiti on the old student centre in the last week or so. The building’s going to be torn down, so it’s been declared fair game for decoration, and every morning when I walk past it new additions have appeared.
The stencil art interests me most. This piece is by Strøk, who says in an interview at grafitti.no that his inspiration and practical skills come from stencilrevolution.com. Look how easy it is to use Photoshop to create a stencil from a photo! And then you simply cut it out and spray. A three layer stencil would take more time, but doesn’t look impossibly difficult. Timeconsuming and requiring skill and imagination, definitely, but no longer secret knowledge.
Now when I take photos I’ll be wondering whether they’d be stencilable.
