Street Art Stencils Inspire Eye-Catching Poster Series
From the clever creatives at Murmure comes this poster series inspired by techniques usually used to create stencil art. While the stencil artists employ hand-cut paper to create their impressions, these elegantly executed works celebrate the stencil itself.
Patterns that seem abstract when viewed up close coalesce into recognisable forms at a certain distance – not that there is anyone famous or indeed infamous being portrayed; the faces that appear here are intentionally strangers. This decision was made with a goal of highlighting the conceptual and visual relevance of the relationship to space and body.
There is a fair bit of descriptive conceptual prose that goes along with this series, but looking beyond all that, I just think that the outcome is effective and very well executed.
The hand cut Pochoirs Posters are the work of Murmure, a graphic design group from Caen in North-Western France. If this is what they come up with when cutting by hand, just imagine what could happen if they get their nimble fingers on some laser cutters!
