Review of Stencil Pirates

Some might find stencil art offensive, but in this well-recorded interview, an articulate artist explains the process involved in creating what he calls “art messages,” and his philosophy of offering an unexpected art experience to people who don’t necessarily visit galleries or museums. There’s risk involved in this less-than-legal endeavor, but as he points out, these days, many forms of public expression are risky. Interesting profile, and the sound of the spray can is so sharp you can practically smell the toxins. Good “fill” length.
