French Stencil Artist Blek Le Rat New Street Piece In Brooklyn, New York City.

Blek Le Rat was recently in New York City for the opening of his latest solo show at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. This gives us the rare opportunity to actually withness Monsieur Le Rat painting on the streets.
Xavier Prou rose to fame as the first street artist in Paris and the first to use life size stencil. His practice has influenced most modern stencil artists including Banksy.
If you are stopping by the big apple, you’ll be able to find the piece at The Bushwick Collective – Troutman Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11237.
Check out some more progress shots by Stephen Kelley after the break and then check back with us in two or three years for another street piece from Blek Le Rat.
