Greg Boudreau - Urban Contemporary Stencil Artist
"Erika, Stencil and Blue" by Greg Boudreau
34" x 42"
spray paint on wood
Greg creates artwork with multi-layered spray stencils on frames constructed of salvaged wood. The images are based on photographs, collected in a variety of means, digitally adjusted and separated to layers. The layers are then printed as architecture blue print plots and cut by hand with an X-acto blade. The process mixes together photography, graphic design, industrial manufacturing, and traditional 'hands-oriented’ artistic approaches. His projects aspire to work against his own constraints of time and resources, emphasizing quantity, size, and increasing detail and difficulty, culminating in exhibits and installations of startling visual impact and ambition.
He was born in Redmond, WA and grew up in North County San Diego in a town called Fallbrook. He moved back to Seattle seven years ago for college, graduated three years ago with a degree in Business Administration, Marketing and began working on an art career. A year ago he was able to switch to working on art full time and currently lives and works in Pioneer Square in Seattle.
Greg was also a part of our current exhibit, "Spray It, Don't Say It".
