For this exhibition Espionage Gallery asked 25 top artists to make works out of wood or paint something on wood. Quickly replacing the more traditional medium of canvas, artists are now turning their creative energy and talent towards this medium. The surface and texture provides endless scope of creative possibilities.

Aerosols and antlers… One beloved cityscape, two approaches. David Soukup stencils out Chicago with pain-staking diligence while David Rettker takes his brush to our favorite neighborhoods populating them with the occasional woodland creature.
In the last decade stencil art has evolved into a respected and well refined art-form. Originating in graffiti and street art, or urban art as it is often called, it has spread all over the world, and from the streets into galleries and exhibitions spaces.
Urban Art Agenda was launched in 2007 and presented in Melbourne and Perth. It brings together some of the most prolific stencil artists from around the world in a unique showcase.
Stencil art has a long, long history….like ancient. For our next exhibit we take a look at three artists working with stencils today. St. Louis -based Peat Wollaeger brings us a character-rich cartoon-inspired style with a graffiti edge and will be featuring his latest stencil series “EYEZ,” Chicago artist David Soukup explores the use of stencils to create intricate architecture-inspired works and Seattle-based Jonathan Wakuda Fischer mixes Japanese themes with modern culture and vibrant colors.
