Long considered the godfather of stencil graffiti art, Xavier Blek le Rat studied painting and architecture in Paris. Since 1981 he has had a great influence on today’s graffiti art movement, his main motivation being social consciousness and the desire to bring art to the people. British graffiti artist Banksy has acknowledged Blek’s influence saying “every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it as well, only twenty years earlier.”
