Dolk – The Making of the rapping Che Guevarra stencil
I’ve posted quite a lot about Dolk the Norwegian Stencil Graffiti artist. It started when a friend of mine spotted some of his stencils and showed me the pictures. I posted those and found more stencils and took pictures of those and posted them too.
What has become my best resource for Dolk Stencil Graffiti news is http://www.thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Dolk
It’s got pictures, stories, interviews and anecdotes.
There is a “Making of” his infamous Che Guevarra stencil (which I also found) that I thought was great.
Check it out here:
This two-color image, an “instant classic” as per Pictures on Walls and “Banksy-heavy” as per thethugsdontwork, features a cigar-smoking Che Guevara proudly pointing to his t-shirt, emblazoned with artist Jim Fitzpatrick’s rendering of Alberto Korda’s (in)famous, much pirated 1960 image of… Che Guevara.
And here is the stencil as it looks on a graffiti covered wall:
