Stencil Art Wednesday

By johnboy 15 September 2010 41

Southern Cross

Our theme of the week for Images of Canberra is stencil art. Above is an interesting one found by Holden Caulfield.

Below is P1’s favourite, followed by ELK’s entry to the australian stencil art prize, which is still in contention as a finalist.

We’re looking for your photographs of stencil art all week, just send them in to images@the-riotact.com

Thumper said :

You aren’t seriously equating the swastika with the southern cross symbol are you?

Really?

Only in that they are both essentially meaningless symbols that have accrued cultural significance through the uses they’ve been put to.

I really like the ‘who or what does this represent’ stencil, because it’s questioning the ownership of the southern cross by the bogan-bigots and implying that the symbol could still be reclaimed by the rest of us (unlike the swastika, which is now completely tarnished as a symbol … at least in Western society).
