“Without a doubt, stencils are the fastest, easiest, and cheapest method for painting an image on a wall, a sidewalk, or almost any object anywhere.
Stencil Nation focuses on the unexpected mix of this lively, accessible medium to reveal engaging aspects of an intentionally secretive international creative community. With dynamically illustrated perspectives from diverse niches of the art form, hundreds of photographs and numerous essays have been curated by StencilArchive.org’s founder, Russell Howze.“

“halo is a handy light specially dedicated to light-writing. Graffiti artists can conserve their own gesture they have with a spray can. It is possible to change the color and the brightness of the led to change the graffiti’s styles. If the light doesn’t have enough battery, the user must shake it to have energy again.“
“In the harsh conditions of Sao Paolo, graffiti artists are pushing street art in new and often dangerous directions. We investigate these artists work, amongst pools of filth and armies of cockroaches.
Sao Paulo’s art movement sometimes goes beyond the streets and into the citys sewers. This is a rainwater gallery in the sewage system, tells artist Zezao. Whilst some street artists are being tempted into top art galleries, some still find their home streets inspirational. I imagine that in a different city where problems are more subtle I would not have the same inspiration to create, a local artist explains.“

American Wall Stenciling, 1790-1840 by Ann Eckert Brown.
A nice book found on Google Books.
“In preparation for their collaboration at Ad Hoc Gallery in Bushwick, Armsrock and Chris Stain sailed deep into the Brooklyn night not far from the huge Brooklyn Navy Yard, hoisting up ladders to put up a large mural stirring the contemplative inner currents of child’s play entitled “I Know There Is Love”, inspired by a Crass song of the same name. Using projections of their original work as well as improvised chalk drawings, the storytelling includes two tadpole-aged lads and a small harbor of imaginary vessels. In it one instantly escapes to a freer time of discovery when multiple dreams were easily set afloat. As if a reaction to the rough and salty seas of daily life in New York for many, the street artist co-captains hang a huge banner across the mast of this ship to announce that it is possible to right the bow and head toward hope.“
