Gunsling3r collects three very different stencil artists who each have a unique approach to the medium. Together they cross the realms between design and fine art while retaining an urbanised aesthetic. For a long time the stencil process has assisted the registration of design, reducing specifics to create the bold identifiable image. Because of this nature street artists have found it a successful tool for getting their ideas across. As part of the graffiti family, stencils illustrate wit, social commentary and creative visual studies while retaining an urbanised attitude, which is no longer restricted to political street messages. Rach J, Marsh and Kiran_x explore and extend what is already considered from local street art to bring their own unique view on what the medium offers. From air brush to aerosol and graphic design to abstraction, Gunsling3r presents the latest new forum of stencil art to Wellington city.
