stencil art

There's plenty of stencil art that keeps popping up around the part of Brunswick where I live. Apparently Melbourne has become the stencil art capital of the world - breeding a new kind of artist. I know a lot of people consider it awful and an eyesore, but as one person I heard interviewed about it said, "Where people are happy and have nothing to worry about, there is no stencil art. It's only where people are struggling, and finding things hard that this kind of thing provides an expression for that pain." At the very least, it makes for a visually interesting area.
