2015 Winner – ‘GRIME S0-019′ by Monstfur (Poland).

 The hand cut stencil “GRIME S0-019” depicts a skull combined with a train on a vintage wooden door. Monstfur was founded in 2006 by two young artists from Częstochowa in the southern part of Poland. The artists work collaboratively together on their hand cut stencils and describe themselves as” byproducts of modern life and the cultural carrion of generations past”.⁣

They draw inspiration from an absurd sense of Polish humour and frequently depict humans’ curious behaviours and traditions. Monstfur’s works are mostly stories of the everyday man and his world of deviations, habits, and weaknesses, but also – joy and remarkable interests. The artworks evoke their early childhood in the 80s, as well as industrial design, urban dystopia and social infrastructure.⁣
