Stencil Art That Blends Graffiti and Decay by Martin Whatson


Norwegian born artist Martin Whatson produces stencil art that lashes out at the mundane, interrupting grayscale scenes with explosions of vibrantly painted graffiti. The works often focus on a singular matte subject, one that is seemingly unaware of the bright words and marks that have surrounded their bleak environment. Whatson’s inspirations come from a variety of urban origins, interested in everything from decaying walls to the graffiti and posters that cover them.

Currently Whatson has a work in the group exhibition “LAX / ORD” at Chicago’s Vertical Gallery. You can see more of his indoor and outdoor work on his Instagram and website.
