“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.”

Putting the show together along with DirtyPilot, I wanted to showcase a broad range of stencil art styles and techniques including photo-realism, pop, and political stencil works that emphasize the power behind stencil art. As a group I feel like we all have something very valuable to offer to the art world. We all work extremely hard and deserve larger venues to showcase our talents. Some of the artists name you will recognize right away and some you will want to keep a close eye out for in the years to come. Catch images of the pieces that I (PaperMonster) will have in the show.
