- Stencilling produces an image or pattern by applying color to a surface
over an intermediate object with designed gaps in it which create the
pattern or image by only allowing the color to reach some parts of the
- It is both the resulting image or pattern and the intermediate object.
- It is usually a thin sheet of material, such as paper, plastic, wood or
metal, with letters or a design cut from it.
The key advantage: it can be reused to repeatedly and rapidly produce
the same letters or design.
To be reusable, they must remain intact after a design is produced and
the stencil is removed from the work surface. With some designs, this is
done by connecting stencil islands (sections of material that are inside
cut-out "holes" in the stencil) to other parts of the stencil with bridges
(narrow sections of material that are not cut out).
As a process:
- can be made with one or many color layers using different techniques,
with most stencils designed to be applied as solid colors.
- sometimes multiple layers of stencils are used on the same image to
add colors or create the illusion of depth.
- book illustration, home decorating, arts & crafts, textiles, military, etc.
Official use: to quickly and clearly label objects, vehicles, and locations.
This allows the user to arrange words, phrases and other labels from
one set of templates, unique to the item being labeled. When objects
are labeled using a single template alphabet, it makes it easier to
identify their affiliation or source.
- is a form of graffiti that makes use of stencils made out of paper, cardboard, or other
media to create an image or text that is easily reproducible. The desired design is cut out
of the selected medium and then the image is transferred to a surface through the use of
spray paint or roll-on paint.
- it is an easy method to produce a political message. For example, the anarcho-punk
band Crass used stencils of anti-war, anarchist, feminist and anti-consumerist messages in
a long-term graffiti campaign around the London Underground system and on advertising
- many artists appreciate the publicity that their artwork can receive. And some just want
their work to be seen. It is easier for an artist to quickly replicate what could be a
complicated piece at a very quick rate, when compared to other conventional tagging
Also well known for their use of stencil art is Blek le Rat and Jef Aerosol from France,
British artist Banksy, New York artist John Fekner, world traveling artist Tavar Zawacki
'ABOVE', and Shepard Fairey's OBEY.
