As a fan of traditional old school grafitti writing, stencling was one of those things that was shunned upon because it was considered “cheating”. fast forward to today’s grafitti movement and it has taken a different direction.
No matter what you of course still have those sprayers who stick to traditional grafitti, but professional grafitti artist like stenciler lady Aiko have taken a turn for the better.
When you see her massive work as well as small pieces she makes stencling look difficult. Her endless talent is one to blame. I myself never thought I would see the day were stencling was taken to a whole other level. Aiko’s work is fantastic, figurative, detailed and most of all unique. We caught up with aiko for a quick interview during her last showing at gallery Brooklyn. Which is closing it’s doors after Aiko’s show. The show is called “The Bunny party” and it’s on display until Saturday the 28th. Closing party is the 29th 6-10.
