Our Talented resident artist, Tayla Carlaw recently facilitated Stencil Workshops for the City Of Unley and Highgate Village. Everybody had a go and created some very unique works on planter pots that will be used in the Unley Community.
Jay Medlen is an up and coming stencil artist from Adelaide, South Australia.
His style has progressed from predominantly grey scale to incorporate a new colour and texture palate. His work involves varying subject matter from hip-hop portraiture and femme fatales to inspirational landscapes and classic street scenes.
Medlen grew up in a community that encouraged his artistic skills from a young age, with more than twenty years experience with multiple creative styles, this fresh face to the stencil scene shows considerable natural talent and has a unique foresight for the genre.Jay's Facebook Page!

Adelaide Represents with another local artist Fletch Cuts. Fletch works works with hand cut stencils, acrylics, oils, aerosol, inks and pastels.
Fletch has easily managed to bridge gaps between mediums with no formal art training. Works including the human face and form and its expressions, to animals and distortions. A 2012 Australian StencilArt Prize finalist, his attention to detail is evident in the clean lines and crisp feel to his multi layered stencil pieces.
Recently his cutting skills have been under the microscope, almost literally. His micro portraits are small enough to fit on a dollar coin, using only spray cans and often consisting of seven to ten layers. His meticulous brush work in various mediums shows an artist very much in control of his craft.
Fletch is definitely an artist to keep your eye on, his work is constantly progressing in unpredictable yet truthful directionsFletch's Facebook Link!
