Sydney Stencil Festival

The Sydney Stencil Festival has been and gone. As a keen follower of street art here in Sydney and also in Melbourne and London I had high hopes for simple, yet striking work. I was disappointed.  

The ‘live spraying’ was amateur at best and the works for auction were overpriced and far from inspiring. There were a few good pieces on show but all had been sold.  The guy running it, JP, needs a run for his money. This event can be bigger, better, more accessible and provide creative work we’d actually want to hang.  

Am I being to tough on them? No, and if you visited I suspect you’ll agree. I’ll post pictures from the day and you can make your own mind up.
