Stencil Land took to the streets of Buenos Aires in 2003, participating in the renaissance of politicized stencil art that developed in the wake of the 2001 economic crisis in Argentina.
True to his name, Stencil Land works exclusively with the medium of stencil, crafting original concepts through the elaborate manipulation of borrowed images. His pieces are at once accessible and provocative, and striking both in terms of their content and level of complexity and detail.
While stencil art in other countries became popular as a way of minimising time spent painting in the street, Stencil Land has taken full advantage of the relative tolerance shown to street art in Buenos Aires. Over time his works have become increasingly ambitious in complexity and scale, resulting in masterful stencils that would be impossible to put up in less permissive environments.
Stencil Land continues to be a fixture in the local street art scene of Buenos Aires. He is one of a group of 6 artists to run Hollywood in Cambodia, an artist-run street art gallery in Buenos Aires.
