A review of Stencil Graffiti from Duncan Cummings site:
"City streets abound with billboards, posters, and corporate advertising
that almost invite a subversive response ...and increasingly are getting
one. Many of today's graffiti artists have adopted the stencil and spray
can, and are using the street as a giant creative forum for their arresting
artwork. "The image," says San Diego artist Shepard Fairey,
"is integrated with the texture of the street." This book showcases
the work of the originators, the innovators, and the new generation who,
as UK artist Nylon puts it, are "breathing life into derelict spaces."
Stencil graffiti is beginning to filter off the street too, as artists
are inspired to use stencils on canvas, clothing, and metal. Tristan Manco
has chosen over 400 of the most visually exuberant, subtle, and creative
examples of the genre from cities all over the world. With subject matter
ranging from the political to the poetic, from the funky to the frankly
curious, stencil graffiti is graphic innovation on an international scale.
Inspirational in form and content, this book is an essential record for
everyone with an interest in design or in contemporary urban culture.
A graphic artist working in the music and television industries, Tristan
Manco is the director of Tijuana Design, based in Bristol, England. Over
the last fifteen years, originally inspired by Parisian stencil graffiti,
he has been documenting walls worldwide."
