Stencil Graffiti artist PaperMonster is passionate about the genre of art he is helping to grow. The artist recently took to his blog to start an initiative for the popular art magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine to create a Stencil issue. Here’s what he wrote:
Welcome to my latest goal!!
I would LOVE to see Juxtapoz Magazine create a special Stencil Art Issue or Book!!
As PaperMonster I want nothing more than to continue to promote the use of stencils whether you are a stencil artists or just someone who wants to use stencils as tool in your paintings or home. I feel that there is no better time than today to document how artists all over the world are using stencils to share their messages or just create something beautiful. That is what has brought me to create this new goal to encourage Juxtapoz Magazine to create a Special Stencil Art Issue. In the past Juxtapoz has created special issues highlighting New York Graffiti, Street Art, and several other themes but never a Stencil Art Issue.
The artist followed the post with a list of the editors and publishers of the magazine and urged readers to email the aforementioned text to them. Juxtapoz responded yesterday simply stating they’re “Not Interested.”

Thank you kindly for your interest and suggestion; however, my editor is not interested in seeing this through.
Best of luck to you. Thanks, again.
Great to see he did get a response. Do you think Juxtapoz Magazine should consider a Stencil issue? The artist is encouraging people to continue to send the message. If you believe Juxtapoz should make a Stencil Issue send them a note.
