The Bomber Jackets is a special limited edition publishing project based around the stencil books The Street Art Stencil Book and Stencil Republic, featuring unique works from twenty of the world’s leading and emerging urban artists.
The project was conceived by Ollystudio and sees artists create limited editions of 50 covers for the book published by Laurence King. Each of the artists have been asked to produce bespoke works for the book jackets, using stencils, screen print and hand spraying techniques.
The ‘orticanoodles’ tag has existed since 2004, preceded by some exercises in trying out how to use the stencil medium. Although the Italian duo don’t remember exactly who was portrayed, those first experiments used pop culture stars as subjects.
Inspired by stencils seen on the street and in self-managed social centres in Italy, their approach has been self-taught. While recognizing the power of the stencil as being immediately understandable and visible on a large scale, Orticanoodles don’t confine their art to the street. On the contrary, they see the increasing interest from art galleries and the art market as enhancing the ‘free expression’ it allows, and contrast it with elitist or exclusive art.
