Stencils are fun to edit, draw, cut and spray. 1 layer stencils are the easiest to start whit when learning how to make a stencil. One can also try to make more layers to have more different colors/values.
I mostly make figurative stencils with main focus on the portraiture. Picking out models is not easy and there are thousands of pictures being looked through before choosing a model.
I want to make stencils that show the image of a deeper meaning. The image will contain symbolism guided towards the thought out agenda.
My thought behind the pictures is to awake interest, curiosity, feelings, thoughts, opinions and debates. I like the way of making images that can tell a story. It can be social, cultural and/or political messages for a set topic over the pictures. I will often try to convey something and create reflections. The best outcome of my art would be to inform and encourage behavioral change in the population for the better.
Stencils can be sprayed on any surface like a canvas, wooden plates and mural walls. Theese three surfaces are what I mainly use. Most of my stencils are sprayed on canvases or paper. Sometimes my stencils even makes it all the way to the streets ! :D
