Stencil Group Show” Art Whino Gallery Opening Photos

November 16, 2008
——————————————————-
This weekend was the opening of the Stencil Group Show for Art Whino Gallery and it has been one of my favorite shows this year. The show brings together stencil artists from all over the world into one collective space where people can truly take in the variety and ingenuity behind beautiful and raw stencil art. The entire collection will be opened until Dec 6th  with a special presentation by author of Stencil Nation, Russell Howze on November 23rd from 12-6pm.  You do not want to miss out on getting some affordable original works from some of the worlds most talented stencil artists including: PaperMonster, John Koleszar, LECKOmio, Chris Stain, Jef Aerosol,  E.L.K., Mefee, SOULE, Janet Bike Girl, Logan Hicks, Dave Lowell, Jazirock, Peter K, Billy Mode, PRVRT and many more.
John Koleszar and Stefan Winterle aka LECKOmio flew in for the show (John from Arizona and Stefan from Germany) and it was such a great experience to meet and work with them. They both helped a ton with the install and brought some incredible art to the event. I can not thank them enough for how big of a help they were and how honored I felt to be working with them. It was a pleasure and they are not just amazing stencil artists, they are amazing people. You can check out their work here:

Both are taking stencil art to new heights and pushing the envelope in terms of how intricate and mind blowing stencil art can become.

I said that once and I still believe that if you want something bad enough you have to do whatever it takes to reach your goal and continue your passion.

You guessed it: all the artists featured are stencil artists. You’re so clever. A massive installation of stencil art, most of which is affordable to “the youngest of the young and the most passionate of collectors,” Stencil features work by BLACKBOOKS, Chris Stain, Jef Aerosol, Logan Hicks, PaperMonster, and many more.
