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!!
