A short history of stencil art in Norway

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.

Mixing graffiti and stencil thecniques is quite popular in streetart, but often the result seems only a bad copy of Banksy’s ideas. In this case the work is really impressive. Very nice piece! I hope to see more of this artist soon.

Political stencils: the italian experience – part one.

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.
