Stencil Event feat. PaperMonster

May 4, 2008
Earlier this week I was invited to Drew University to create some stencils and help with a stencil/muralist event which La Casa Latina (Theme House) was holding for the campus. This free event gave people the opportunity to create t-shirts using stencil and fabric paint to create beautiful pieces of walking art. The weather was fantastic and I brought along some things to demonstrate how more complex stencil pieces are put together. Overall it was a fantastic time and the theme house did a great job of providing a means of self expression for the campus. In addition to the event I was invited by a curator to create several pieces which will be shown in a restaurant name Mompou (located inNewark, New Jersey’s Ironbound District.) The space is incredible and I will post some preview pictures after the hanging next week. Here are some pictures from the stencil art event. Enjoy.

I cut some simple stencils for students to use on t-shirts.

Spraypaint and stencils makes a perfect combination.

There were tons of people out for the event.

When I first started stenciling, this was the easiest method to making shirts on a ten dollar budget.

PaperMonster canvases prepared and ready for the final touches.
