Creative Violation: The Rebel Art of the Street Stencil

January 12, 2010

This popped up in the inbox today, you may recognize some Justseedsers.

Creative Violation documents the exploding underground art form of the street stencil and explores its roots in political street art, industrial signage and graffiti. These illicit spray paint markings, not to be confused with traditional graffiti tagging, steal the language and techniques of advertising and turn them against the imperatives of the mass market, punctuating the urban landscape in cities across the world.

Check it out on IMDb.
