Check out the eye-opening work of global stencil artists showcased in Hurstville

The Hurstville Museum and Gallery pops this summer with the arrival on tour of the 2019 Stencil Art Prize finalists. Exhibiting from February 6 though to May 2, the show features the edgy, eye-catching and politically charged works created by 55 creatives from across the globe. There’s a mind-bending array of technique on display too, from photo-realist stencils built painstakingly, layer upon layer, to intricate hand-cut works crafted on delicate paper.

Australian artists from the 2019 run share the space with works from fellow creative souls from as far afield as Scotland, South Korea and the States, as well as spots closer to home, including Indonesia and New Zealand. The largest stencil event in the world began back in 2009 with a small grant from Marrickville Council of $500 and has grown to be a truly global event with a hefty $10,000 prize pot attached. So head along to Hurstville and take a squiz at some of the the whiziest works in stencil art while they're in town.
