Last week i was in Stavanger for the opening of NUART 2013. On sunday the wonderful crew of NUART organized a small guided tour in the city to discover the new walls from this year’s edition of the festival. At the beginning of the tour one of the guides told us that at Tou Scene is possible to find a short history of norwegian stencil art, with pieces og Dolk, Pøbel, Strøk, Martin Whatson, MIR, just in front of the exibition’s entrance.
It’s quite common in Italy, particularly in large cities, to find stencils containing a political message. They are often very simple and easy to make, but i like their directedness and the idea to use an artistic form of expression to convey a political statement. The following pictures are taken in Torino and Venezia.
1. Torino: No War For Oil.
2. Torino: Vegan Revolt
3. Torino: War Is Still Out There
4. Venezia: Block G8
5. Venezia: Boycott WTO
6. Venezia: Boycott WTO
