The Street Art Stencil Book

Street art. It's a difficult genre to define, as the latest "street art festival" to hit East London, "Moniker", made clear. The festival played host to the likes of Polly Morgan and Ben Eine (whose work is currently hanging in the White House), which would suggest that Street art is an area where anyone is welcome, so long as they have youth and an edge. From grafitti to taxidermy and guerilla sculpting to canvas painting, as long as there's a creative sort with a bit of swagger behind it, it's street.

Stenciling, however, is the key staple of many a street artist's daily diet, and it's a practice which graphic design company On.Studio have explored in their latest tome "the street art stencil book".

Featuring profiles on some of the biggest street artists working today - from the likes of Eine and XOOOOX_, whose pieces have a distinctly typographic ilk, to Logan Hicks and Btoy who work more intricately - the book also features an interview with godfather of street art Blek Le Rat (though -whisper it - Banksy, is conspicuously absent throughout).

The key selling point of On.Studio's new book however is that it features a series of gorgeous stencils, cut-out from brown card, which mimick one work by each artist. So, should you wish (though we'd never advocate mindless vandalism) you could create some street art of your own. Though, if we've learnt anything from this book, forgery most definitely is not street.

The Street Art Stencil Book by On.Studio is now available for £19.95. For more information visit www.laurenceking.com
