Blek Le Rat x Documentary

9 May

Thanks to 100 Proof and Blek Le Rat for the video.

Blek Le Rat is by many considered the father of urban stenciling and the first real artist in this field. He started his activity as an underground stencil artist in 1981, in Paris, and he definitely has produced some of the best stencils ever: caustic and meaningful, he often toyed with politics and made great fun of the big spheres of power. If this was not enough, after being caught in 1992, in order to avoid himseld further heavy fines, he invented a way to damage less the public areas he was going to use as canvas. Guess what? Paste-ups were born!
