Canberra stencil artist E.L.K has won the 2010 Australian stencil art prize. Taking $2000 for his ingenious efforts, E.L.K's photo realist stencil of American poet, writer, actor and musician Saul Williams blew away the judges with its technical skill. As a self taught artist, E.L.K has spent the last six years creating and honing his own technique of painstakingly meticulous stencil art. At first glimpse, it's hard to believe that something so photo realistic was created by hand and spray can.
Spader would like to give E.L.K a huge congratulations for his consistent hard work over the years. Big ups!
