Stencil Art prize
Edgy, political, cheeky and pop-culture inspired–the Stencil Art Prize exhibition features artworks by 66 finalists from around the globe. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, the Prize is a snapshot of the grassroots stencil art form that has undergone a resurgence in recent decades. This is the first time Stencil Art Prize has exhibited at the Glasshouse Regional Gallery, in addition the Exhibition will also feature previous winning artworks from the past 10 years of the Stencil Art Prize.
The Stencil Art Prize’s global community of finalists collectively push the boundaries of the“stencil definition” each year as they develop new stencil techniques, messages, materials and technology. From photo realist stencils involving dozens of layers–to intricate handcut stencils on delicate paper–the Stencil Art Prize is the authority on all things ‘stencil art’.
Finalists represented in this year’s exhibition come from a whopping 23 countries including Australia, Canada, Croatia, England, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Scotland, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands and USA.
