10 Years. This photo is from 2009. Through art I have made some incredible and extremely talented friends. Most of them use small knives to create intricate and beautiful stencils. Layers upon layers that develop into breathtaking images. In 2009 I created the “Friends With Knives”. A growing collection of artists with one goal; to show the world the value and beauty behind stencil art and stencil graffiti. The power that a simple stencil can have to change the world. Many thanks to @dirtypilotcom for giving us the first opportunity to share our work and to my friends @royschreuder @regantamanui @davelowell @benslow @billymode @a1oneakatanha @eyez @elkstencils and @lecko76 Looking forward to the future!!! #PaperMonster #stencil #stencils #streetart #stencilart #streetartists #stencilgraffiti #stencilrevolution #stencilartists #graffiti #graffitiart #graffitiworld #urbanart #urbancanvas #canvas #knives #friendswithknives #dirtypilot #art #artlife #artshow #gallery #galleryshow #spraycan #spraypaint

10 Years. Nothing is promised. Throughout my life I have had incredible amounts of support. People who have taken a risk and believed in me. There are times where I look back and can’t thank people enough for how they have helped me develop as an artist. Galleries like Art Whino @artwhino Dirty Pilot @dirtypilotcom Parlor Gallery @parlorgallery and Metropolis Gallery @angelomadrigale opened so many wonderful doors and helped me mature as an artist. Every show I have I personally hand out stickers with my art work on them. I’ve had people throw out the stickers into the trash right in front of my face. You focus on the good. Hope that you will inspire. Some of the most meaningful emails I have received have been from teachers who use my paintings to teach their students about art. To all of you that have and continue to support me THANK YOU with all my heart!! #PaperMonster #stencil #stencils #stencilart #stencilart #streetartists #stencilgraffiti #streetartcollage #stencilrevolution #graffiti #graffitiart #graffitiworld #art #artlife #artshow #artwhino #dirtypilot #parlorgallery #gallery #galleryshow #drawing #urbanart #urbancanvas #drawing #spraycan #spraypaint #canvas

Photos: NY Art Book Fair 2009 @PS1ContempArt

October 5, 2009
I had the amazing opportunity to take part in the 2009 NY Art Book Fair signing copies of the Year One Rewind book by DirtyPilot (HERE) for the SCB Art Book Collection – Booth Z-01 alongside artists Cern, Daze, and Chris Stain. The fair had a huge amount of eye candy with books, zines, posters, and magazines featuring a wide range of art. I may be biased but our booth had the best collection of art books but maybe that is just my opinion. You can check out images of the fair below and even catch images of Martha Cooper signing copies of her books during the fair. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.

Interview: @SensesLost with PaperMonster on “Friends with Knives” Stencil Group Show

September 24, 2009
I had the pleasure to sit down with Senses Lost (HERE) and chat about the process of curating the “Friends With Knives” Stencil Group Show current open at DirtyPilot.com (HERE). The interview covers everything from the styles of stencil art I wanted to highlight in the show as well as the my thoughts on the future of stencil graffiti. Here is a short excerpt from the interview: To read more visit:

::Via SensesLost:::
 
Explain the concept behind “Friends with Knives Show”?
The entire concept behind the “Friends with Knives” show is ultimately about diversity. When I was approached to curate a stencil group show through DirtyPilot.com. I wanted to have stencil artists that really cover a wide range of styles. We are all individuals and have taken the fundamentals from cutting thick pieces of cardboard with a kitchen knife to making beautiful works of art……
“As stencil artists we have a common bond and we know the hardships and struggles that come with the work that we do. The process of cutting stencils can be grueling but at the same time it is extremely difficult to gain respect and admiration for the huge amount of work and dedication that we put in from the art world at large.” -PaperMonster

Also, I want to send a HUGE thanks to everyone who covered the show on sites all over!!
