Opening Night 6pm Friday 5 January 2018

Showcasing 67 stencil artists from 25 countries, the Stencil Art Prize is the world’s largest stencil event. Influenced by the ephemeral nature of street art, these stencil-based works blend pop-culture imagery and global politics to highlight the growing concerns of a socially engaged generation of artists.

This exhibition is a unique collection of works from Australia, Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iran, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Syria, Thailand, United Kingdom and USA.

Highlights of the exhibition include the Austrian duo Jana & JS with their intimate style of portraiture; David Soukup (USA) and his internationally acclaimed Chicago fire escapes; Iranian artist Afshid with his portrayal of refugees, migration and heritage; Mue Bon’s (Thailand) playful take on capitalism and Australia’s own Kirpy who has layered dozens of street posters as a base upon which to create a streetscape.

The stencil artists in this exhibition encompass nearly every stencil making method on the planet including hand drawn and hand cut stencils, computer generated stencil layers, silk screen stencils and screen printing processes, collage and mixed media stencils, spray paint techniques, water colour, ink and more.

Artworks and print editions of the stencils are for sale at www.stencilartprize.com
