“There’s a fine line between what’s an eyesore and what’s really beautiful,” says PaperMonster. “There’s a line between writing on the street, with no purpose versus a very well thought-out message that people can connect with.”

“There’s a lot of work that goes into each stencil and each painting,” says PaperMonster, who notes that many compositions require more than a dozen different stencils and aerosol colors. “It deserves to have a proper space so people can observe it and spend time with it. In the street, the experience is very ephemeral.”
