“Joy of Stenciling” Art Show opening Friday March 2 at Black Book Gallery in Denver, Colorado USA
Denver artist, Ian Millard will be exhibiting “The Joy of Stenciling” at Black Book Gallery for the month of March. “The Joy of Stenciling” takes on a distinct Americana identity, with images depicting vintage food items and products. For this new body of work, Millard used over 200 hand-cut stencils and spray paint to create over 30 photo-realistic works. Ian has been perfecting stencils for many years and this exhibit reveals his devotion and abilities – many of the pieces in the show required over 1,000 handmade cuts to complete. Join us on March 2nd, 2012 at 6pm for a mind blowing display of hard work and nostalgia.

Traffic Gallery have just announced news of “Back to School” – a solo show by Polish artist MARIUSZ WARAS aka m-city at Traffic Gallery | Friday 9 March | time 19.00-21.30
[9 March – 3 May 2012]
From the press release:
“M-City has a mathematical approach to the stencil through his depiction of the city and futuristic buildings, which does not restrict his imagination and makes him one of the most talented stencil artists of his generation. The Polish muralist already painted many huge murals during his trip: airships, train engines, paddle steamers, all as powerful as if they were out of a Fritz Lang movie. His canvases are equally powerful, and we can’t wait to see this next exhibition in Italy.”

In 2008 he was invited by the famous English Stenciler Banksy at Cans Festival in London, and later that year included by the international street art expert Tristan Manco into the official list of the world’s most important artists of the stencil-graffiti scene.
2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Stencilgraffiti.com. First created in 2002 as a companion to the release of the book ‘Stencil Graffiti’ by Tristan Manco, this site has since then acted as a hub for all things related to the world of stencil art with regularly updated resource links to artists, exhibitions, festivals, education and research in this field.
To celebrate this tenth anniversary of the website is now in the process of being revamped with more up-to-date content, news and galleries. More posts to come – stay tuned!
