This link came from Karen on Muralsplus. It is a feature on Juxtapoz, an underground “Arts and Culture Magazine” online. Blek Le Rat is considered to be the originator of stencil graffiti as an art form.
Just slightly different than what we commonly think of as stenciled art, but stenciled graffiti is worldwide and is used to deliver political commentary to the masses and seen by some as “urban beautification”. If you want to delve into it more, there area many links that lead to many more links on my favorite site ever, Wikipedia.
