Day 6. After several months I got the chance I wanted!! The school wanted to renovate our late night snack place called “The Space”. Without hesitation I said I would paint it for free!! The next few weeks in between classes and work I would draw out ideas during class, use the money from my work-study to buy materials and persuade my friends to come help me paint each night. I created new stencils from my travels and was now inspired by a new book: Graffiti World put together by Nicholas Ganz and Tristan Manco @tristan_manco In fact you can see the logo for Graffiti World in the center. All of my heart went into making sure the piece would be loved and preserved. Inside the mural I left hidden messages and thank you(s) to my friends. Years later the entire building was torn down to build a new student center. The mural was also destroyed and I was given a brick from the building during my 5th year class reunion. #PaperMonster #paint #art #stencil #stencils #streetart #stencilart #streetartists #stencilgraffiti #graffiti #graffitiart #graffitiworld #urbanart #urbancanvas #nycart #nycstreetart #spraypaint #spraycan #acrylic #drawing #wings #rat #birds #paintlife

Day 2. There are few books that have had an impact on my life. Stencil Graffiti by Tristan Manco @tristan_manco is one of those books. At the time there were little to no books on stencils or street art. This book captured the street art movement in such a beautiful way. It would be in this book where I would learn about Blek Le Rat and other incredible stencil artists that I continue to admire. Little did I know that years later this book would travel with me to Paris to meet Blek @blekleratoriginal I highly recommend this book to everyone. It is a wonderful source of inspiration. #stencil #stencils #streetart #stencilart #stencilgraffiti #streetartcollage #stencilrevolution #streetartcollector #streetartcollection #graffiti #graffitiart #urbanart #banksy #bleklerat #arys #acrylic #artcollection #drawing

Day 1. We all have a story and this is mine. In 2004 I started my first stencil and I was immediately hooked. Every day I would look and imagine how things could be turned into a stencil. Imagining lines and cuts that don’t exist. I would train my eyes to look at a car and imagine how to make that image into a simple stencil. It felt like seeing the world with a whole new set of eyes. When I started I was fascinated by animals. These were the first subjects that I wanted to make stencils of. My dad @padremonster got me my first exacto knife set and I used clear sheets from an overhead projector to make each small stencil. Later as PaperMonster I would combine animals with the faces of women to tell a new story. #PaperMonster #paint #penguin #stencil #streetart #stencilart #stencilgraffiti #streetartcollage #graffiti #graffitiart #urbanart #monkey #cutout #drawing #acrylic #spraypaint #exacto #canvas #art
