Japanese Stencil Master: Roamcouch

Roamcouch is a Japanese artist who has captivated audiences with his refine and elaborate works of cityscapes. His work stands out for having a quality and level of complexity that borders on the unbelievable and the artist can spend up to a year for some of his works. The artist selects a palette of up to 50 colours and for each colour creates a layer, hand cut with a cutter. The overlapping of the images generated by the templates creates the work.

Roamcouch is not very likely to represent complex ideas because, as he himself admits, he is not interested. His personal circumstances made him have a particular point of view about visual arts; Roamcouch searches for beauty in the images he represents, in the same way, he does on the experiences that life offers. His works show landmarks of major cities like London, Paris or New York, and so the artist embraces Western culture.

Snik: Stencil Artisans

Artist duo Snik from Stamford, UK, were initially inspired by the graffiti scene & have been working with stencils & spray cans for 10 years now. Their unique & intricate process is equally captivating on walls, as it in on canvas. They hand cut up to nine layers at a time, working with different mediums, techniques, paints & varnishes. Often times, the detailed stencils they create are worthy works of art in their own right.
