Many graffiti masterpieces were created using templates such as those seen in the Protest Stencil Toolkit art exhibition. What I like about this particular exhibit is that it blatantly focuses on the use of such stencils. More than that, some of these stencils are actually viewed as art themselves, which, if you think about it, is really the case anyhow.

Created by Patrick Thomas, who considers himself a iconographiste rather than a graphic artist, the Protest Stencil Toolkit exhibit is all about iconic imagery from peace signs to portraits. By honing in on popular imagery, he transforms these most common visual artifacts into uncommon commentary on society and politics.

What is even better is that the art featured in the Protest Stencil Toolkit show is actually affordable.
