Stencil Art Prize features finalists from around the globe

18/01/2021

Hurstville Museum & Gallery is thrilled to announce its latest touring exhibition, The Stencil Art Prize, which will be on display from 6 February to 2 May 2021.

Edgy, political, cheeky and pop-culture inspired, The Stencil Art Prize features 55 finalists from all over the world.

The Prize is a snapshot of the grassroots stencil art form that has undergone resurgence in recent decades and is now thriving on the streets in every country around the globe. The Stencil Art Prize international community of finalists push the boundaries of the ‘stencil definition’ utilising a diverse range of techniques, materials and technology. From photo-realist stencils with dozens of layers, to intricate hand-cut stencils on delicate paper – The Stencil Art Prize is the authority on all things ‘stencil art’.

Finalists represented from 23 countries include Australia, Canada, Croatia, England, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Scotland, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands and the United States of America.

The Stencil Art Prize is the largest stencil event in the world, and began back in 2009 with a small grant from Marrickville Council of $500 and 13 entrants. The Prize is now a global experience with $10,000 prize money. The objectives of the Prize are to provide recognition and reward for stencil artists, while also fostering an international community for these artists.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the launch of the publication CUT: 10 Years of the Stencil Art Prize will coincide with this exhibition when it is on display at Hurstville Museum & Gallery.
