  1. Α beginner’s guide to painting with stencils:

    01. Draw or copy your image on a piece of paper.
    02. Glue the paper onto a bit of card using good glue.
    03. Cut straight through drawing and card at the same time using a very sharp knife. Snap off blades, are best. The sharpest your knife the better your stencil looks. As the Grim Reaper said to his new apprentice:¨You must learn the compassion suitable to your trade –a fucking sharp edge.”
    04. Ideal card should be about 1.5 mm thick –much fatter and it’s too difficult and boring to cut through. Any thinner and it gets sloppy too quick.
    05. Find an unassuming piece of card as a folder to hold your stencil in and leave the house before you think of something more comfortable you could be doing.
    06. Get a small roll of gaffa tape and pre-tear small strips ready to attach stencil to the wall.
    07. Shake and test can of paint before you leave. Cheap British paint is fine but some brands bleed more than others. Matt finish comes out better and dries quicker.
    08. Apply paint sparingly.
    09. Wear a hat.
    10. Move around the city quickly. Acting like a sad old drunk if you attract attention.
    11. Pace yourself and repeat as often as you feel inadequate and no-one listens to a word you say.
    12. Never paint a graffiti in a town where they still point at airplanes.

    ahaha, thank you
    We had a great time during this workshop. Unfortunatelly I have no photos. I couln’t put the head of the young graffit artists against a brick wall.

  3. “Some people think you should have better things to think about, than trying to think about better things. But the instinct is still there. Life is unfair and the world is full of cripples, death and deviousness.
    In response to this, painting pictures seems a pointless way to spend your time. Your average plumber does more for humanity than some git that makes abstract art or paints seaside views full of boats. At least graffiti has a fighting chance of meaning a little more to people. Graffiti has been used to start revolutions, stop wars and generally is the voice of people who aren’t listened to. Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they’re having a piss.”

    Αγαπητέ Com Truise μήπως θα ήθελες να γράψεις κάτι για αυτό τον ιστότοπο, εκτός από αυτά τα εκπληκτικά σχόλια; Εμείς αναλαμβάνουμε την μετάφραση στα ισπανικά.
