More and more Dolk – and more again…

March 11, 2007 at 12:34 am 13 comments

Dolk is undoubtedly one of the best stencil artists around. But he isn’t good because he’s good. He’s good because his stuff communicates.

Each one of his stencils have a message – but not some heavy political “revolution.” Yet you leave the image and the mind starts going. Every image has that little twist.

Check out the marathon runner crossing the police line? (picture courtesy of Wooster Collective)

Marathoning over a police line

Or “Che” – here’s the symbol of revolution – but rapping?

Rappin' Che

Or the boy remote controlling… a bird?

Or what about the Burger King?

The Burger King?

It’s communication. And when you see one of these images, always look for that little (or big) extra.

Here are some “Dolk Resources” that I’ve found to be the best ones around.

Check them out.

First the “official” Dolk fans forum, you need a login but it’s full of amazing shots from around the world.

Find it on: www.DOLK.co.uk

Second the interview done by “Schhh” - it’s in English and Spanish.

Find it on: http://www.schhh.unmicroclima.com/blog/?p=151#englishdolk

Then this Wiki has a ton of photos and other info. Definitely worth checking out. This is hosted at TheGiant.org.

Find it on: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php?title=Dolk&redirect=no

(but don’t hotlink to his images he doesn’t like that)

And some additional pictures from Wooster Collective. They have some great stuff too.

Stencil Revolution has also got a good bunch of shots and additionally they have comments by Dolk and others on these. Very neat. Also has it categorized differently here.

Find it here: http://www.stencilrevolution.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=1864

And then Stencil Archive has some stuff - mainly from Barcelona so update it if you have more.

Find it here: http://stencilarchive.org/index.php?set_albumName=album337&name=gallery&include=view_album.php

I know there was mention that some were on sale as Picturesonwalls or Banksy but I could not easily find them so voila. If you find it then post the link in the comments please.

    I really like those stencils. They’re much more intelligent than most of the ones you see on the street. My girlfriend just wrote an article about street art in Los Angeles that led me to this article. You might check it out if you’re into images with a message, though they’re probably not as amazing as the ones you’ve posted.

    I love street art and you’ve posted some great examples. Keep ‘em coming!

    As soon as my broken leg heals I plan on scoping out some great graffiti around Atlanta.

    This is nice but it does not seem very legal.

    I would prefer this was done in a legal way.

    I just cancelled a comment here by someone who calls himself the northernprophet. The comment was a link to an anti-scientology site. I adore debate, I despise idiots who cant differentiate between different topics.
    I cancelled the comment for two reasons:
    One it’s got nothing to do on this post and would be better placed on my post about Scientology

    http://marcozna.wordpress.com/2007/05/17/my-views-scientology-bbc-john-sweeney-and-all-the-hubbub/

    and two because it isn’t debate, it’s cowardice to drop a link and leave. At least leave a comment.
    More of that crap and I think I’ll be publishing your email address and IP on my blog.
    dude – enjoy the stencil graffiti.

    I love stencil art, it seems to get a lot more political and socially concious compared to normal graffiti.

    Needless to say, there are many phenomena that are ignored, such as the ubiquity of hyperbolic discounting. ,
