Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the edgy, political and pop culture-inspired 2019 Stencil Art Prize Exhibition travels to Victoria for the first time to exhibit at Southern Buoy Studios.
Featuring 2019 finalists and previous winners, this special anniversary show hosts artworks from 23 countries. The exhibition represents a snapshot of the grassroots stencil art form, demonstrating its resurgence in recent decades.
Sydney artist Edward Woodley was awarded the 2019 prize of $10,000 for his controversial artwork Eternal Spirit – 2, with New Zealand artist Flox, Mexico’s MEZK and Italy’s Moz all highly commended.
Southern Buoy Studios founder Micah Mills said: “We thought this was the perfect show to challenge perceptions of what art means. We want to welcome our local community down for a unique opening amongst these evocative artworks, meet the artists and celebrate street art festival-style with partners like the Jetty Road Brewery Caravan and Little Olive, the travelling café available for attendees to enjoy.”
The 2019 Stencil Art Prize Exhibition opens on December 7 from 4-6pm and runs until February 7 at Southern Buoy Studios, 1/19 Carbine Way, Mornington. Go to www.southernbuoystudios.com.au for details.
