Blek Le Rat Stencil Pioneer, Documentary

The Street Knowledge Agency, representers of author and content auteur King Adz, recently uploaded a half-hourly documentary about stencil art pioneer Blek Le Rat, whose 20 years old Madonna street artwork in Leipzig lately got preserved!

As Crackajack.de mentioned, it’s probably the video from the outsold Blek Le Rat – Original Stencil Pioneer DVD by Gestalten. If anyone knows whether this is true, I would be pleased about a short comment…

Street art has evolved and every major stencil artist today, most famously Banksy, have been influenced by Blek’s unique style. Bansky claims, “every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it as well, only twenty years earlier…”

It’s worth watching! For more about stencil art, check out our archives.
