Snik: Amazing Stencil Painting

I have been enjoying seeing Snik's work for a long time and he continues to blow my mind, not just visually but technically. I can barely do a 2 or 3 layer stencil but this portrait of Sir Ian Mckellon

based on photo by Jon Cartwright
used 8 layers of intricate cutting.Figuring out the value ranges and deciding which stencil layer to spray is a skill I respect.

Snik said it took about 2 weeks to cut the stencil and the final piece was sprayed painted onto a found piece of wood.
You can find snik on fb or instagram
