Stencil art

  1. 1. Stencil art By jaymi Murray
  2. 2. <ul><li>Stencil art/graffiti is an important and enriching part of our public space and life, as it tweaks emotions, sparks questions and some how challenges us to regard our immediate environment in a different way. Stencil art can offer us a sense of unity when a strong message is portrayed. Stencil Art is to some extent a commentary of the present day, conveying a broad-scope of information from political climates to technologies available. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>There are many different theme’s </li></ul><ul><li>in stencil art. Being: </li></ul><ul><li>Religion/ Race </li></ul><ul><li>political </li></ul><ul><li>Romance </li></ul><ul><li>Jokes / entertainment. </li></ul><ul><li>Or just cool designs </li></ul>
  4. 4. Religion & Race <ul><li>There are a few racist stencils. One I saw a while ago, was plain stencil text. It was in Coburg where there is a high Muslim population, it read ‘our life is not under threat, our way of life is the threat’ </li></ul><ul><li>When I first read this I thought that yeah it was to do with extremist Muslims, but then I though about it a lot. It could’ve been anyone. Even someone tiring to make us think that it was a Muslim act. But altogether it was a very powerful statement that moved me and made me think a lot. </li></ul><ul><li>this here is a stencil of a politician linked to George Bush. I think the meaning behind it is that, there only making things worse and therefore putting us in danger. It is a powerful piece of art because it’s so blunt. I like it a lot. I like that it isn’t neat. I like the drips coming from his face, it portrays, not a very nice person. </li></ul>
