“And Graffiti commanded man to paint all walls with bright and lively

colors, do not fall prey to the evil of the buff, of dripping brown

paint and sandblasted emptiness” Krylon 2:16-17

 

“Wherefore, as by one buff sin entered the world, and so buffing passed

among all walls.” Painter’s Touch 5:12

 

Call for Participation: We Want Your Street Art

Deadline: April 15, 2004

 

The God Bless Graffiti Coalition (GBGC), a national graffiti advocacy

group (see below description), is looking for artists who use posters,

stencils, stickers and sign installations to send us their work for an

exhibition project entitled “On the 8th Day..." wall.

 

This project is part of a larger political art exhibition opening this

coming May 2004 at Mass MOCA (the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary

Art), one of the leading museums for contemporary art in North America.

The show, called “The Interventionists,” is a collection of work by

artists who “intervene” in public space. Mass MOCA (www.massmoca.org)

is no hipster gallery, it sees over 110,000 people come through its

doors in the course of a year! “The Interventionists” will be on

display for 10 months. The “On the 8th Day..." project will be

installed on a 69’ x 20’ wall which is located in the opening room for

the entire “The Interventionists” exhibition.

 

This is an open call and we are asking for MULTIPLE copies of poster,

stencil, sticker and sign work (as well as actual stencils) of any size

(we would love to receive large works). All this material will be used

to construct a giant wall of street art, with the work pasted, stuck

and painted directly on the wall. NOTE: Because we will be piling the

work of hundreds of artists onto the wall, some work will only be

partially visible on the final product (just like in the street). If

you have any questions please let us know at

graffiti@c... and we will try to help. We

look forward to hearing from you!

 

In Graffiti We Trust,

The God Bless Graffiti Coalition

will be wasted, all will be distributed or put up. If anything is

leftover, we will put it up on the street!

 

Send all work larger than 24" x 36" to: MASS MoCA (Attn: Nato

Thompson),1040 MASS MoCA way, North Adams, MA 01247

artists. The success of our initial brochure has led us to expand our

activities, including subway ads and our latest endeavor, graffiti

bible tracts. The "On the 8th Day..." wall will be our first museum

to wider and wider audiences.

NEVER is SEVER without the S and LIES is BIES without the B. PARA is DAIM with the PRA replacing the DAM. dont use that stealing names claim, its impossible to come up with an original name that is an actual word thats not stupid. im sure there are a million other PARA's out there and a million and one other CODE's out there. none that are super-wellknown writers like COPE but still. as far as that copying names shit goes who cares, wutever else u got against whoever this kid is doesn't appeal to me so thats all i got to say. oh ya and as far as KISE's remark about "keepin it simple" well honestly i hear alot of no talent writers use that to justify that they cant do anything technical. so ummmmmmm, yeah

Here's another one...

 

Date: Wed, 24 Dec 2003 00:50:26 -0800 (PST)

From: pdx art and revolution <pdxartandrevolution@yahoo.com>

 

hello all

 

This is a general call for submissions for a stencil show happening in Portland in February. Some of you I've already been in contact with and this is an update. Those of you who've never heard from me this is my attempt at spreading the word and asking for your help with posting this event and call for submissions on your websites.

 

This was originally going to be a benefit show for specific people working against the sign/mural laws in Portland specifically those dealing with street art but since this idea came about some people have made some amazing changes and we no longer will need the funding so this event will now benefit the showing artists with the option of donating funds, from sales, to pay for performing artists (dj etc.) for the opening. The show will take place at Liberty Hall which is an emerging art gallery and community space in northeast Portland. Please contact me if you need more information and much thanks to all who have helped out already......peace

chill and dont be a prick.... think about it anything sharp a single edged blade, a box cutter, a knife.... the exacto knife would be more precise

as to what to cut it out of ...that's on you...durability flexibility and just over all convenince i would go with acetate... you could cut it out of paper, cardboard, manilla folders ....anything ...it's what you're comfortable with.

Could stencils be the artful answer to graffiti?

by carrol nader nov. 3, 2003

 

It's the anarchist's canvas - a platform for artists who thumb their noses at authority. But is street art, with its devil-may-care disposition, going legit?

 

Look around city streets and laneways and you'll notice a more precise art form upstaging the free-flowing graffiti scrawl. The brazen colours are still there, as are the political connotations, but the artists seem to be practising greater decorum with their craft.

 

Stencil art is emerging as a more edgy form of street art - but one that is also more aesthetically appealing.

 

Street artist "Bob", known by his peers as "Ha ha", says Melbourne is now in the top three cities in the world for stencil art. He describes it as creative expression that makes people take notice.

 

"If you put your viewpoint across in a visual way, like with a stencil, it's a good way to pass on a political message," he said.

 

"Ha ha" concedes that stencil art is still technically graffiti and therefore pushes the boundaries of what's legal. But he says art academics have approached him in the street, shaken his hand and thanked him for making the streets more enjoyable.

Melbourne University senior lecturer in criminology, Adam Sutton, said some graffiti was "quite decorative and witty".

 

"It's quite clear that some of it is being commissioned by people who own shops and I think it actually enhances the environment," he said.

 

But Dr Sutton said the rights of an artist should not override the broader rights of society. Nor could social policy allow for aesthetic judgement of graffiti - keeping the appealing graffiti while getting rid of the "nasty stuff".

 

"Some graffiti is very good and decorative, some of it is terrible scribbling and defacing. That graffiti makes people feel uneasy and quite unsafe."

 

But "Ha ha" insists graffiti artists have to observe an etiquette in their art.

 

"If you do a piece, then someone does something on top of your work, it's like they're dissing you hardcore," he said.

 

"Most people who are in the scene know street etiquette and everyone respects everyone's work, but young kids starting out don't know the rules, and they paint over other people's work and then wonder why their work gets crossed out."

 

Stencil art may also be an innovative way of obliterating unwanted scrawling. Some inner-city hotels commission street artists to do stencil work incorporating the hotel's logo.

 

Steve Ferraris, owner of the Public Bar in North Melbourne, saw an opportunity to keep the scrawlers away. "We got sick of people graffitiing our toilets so we decided to bring in some street artists, because if we do it ourselves people won't graffiti over it," he said. The artists happily complied for the price of beers and a free feed.
