Unknown stencil artist in Dublin (or is it Banksy ???)

When I was in Dublin (Ireland), I came accross these stencils in a shop. For the ones who know Dublin: it was a shop with Jeans and streetwear in the St. Stephen's Green Shopping Center, on the second floor if I remember well. The stencils were on the wall next to the stairs leading to the next floor within the shop. I entered and asked the shop assistant who didn't have a clue who had put these stencils there and also didn't pay them too much attention. I think they are really good. Unfortunately, a part of the last stencil (the guy who is fishing) was a bit covered by a poster.The style looks a bit like Banksy but there was no indication that he left them there.... Any ideas ???

stencils on "Päckchen" - stickers II


stencils on "Päckchen" - stickers I

A very popular way for putting stencils in Germany is to prepare them on stickers from the post office. ("Päckchen" means small parcel and "Paket" parcel). Like this you can later just stick them quickly on a spot you like. All photos have been taken in Hamburg apart from the one of Dalí stencil, I saw that one in Barcelona.

Artiste-Ouvrier stencils in Hamburg

The stencil artists artiste-ouvrier had an exhibition of their works in Hamburg at the Nanometer Gallery in November 2006. Unfortunately, it was already over when I was in Hamburg later but at least they had left some really nice stencils outside the gallery. One seems to be a copy of the "Saint George" (see painting).
More about artiste-ouvrier on their official website www.artiste-ouvrier.com or on the WCA photoblog on http://www.fotolog.com/wca_stencil.

Stencils from Hamburg - part II

Sorry for the delay but I have been a bit busy.... These stencils were used as advertising for events mostly for a place called "Rote Flora" in the district "Schanzenviertel". It is a house occupied of squatters where events like theater pieces take place. I promise to put some really good pics this weekend !
