The first stencil I ever bought was an Ed Roth. As a stencil designer myself, I adore his products and the fact that he made stencils so stinkin’ cool. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also super stylish and a super nice guy.
Stencil1 was founded by Ed back in 2004, but his love of stencils and graffiti-esque art began long before. Ed and his stencils had their debut on Martha Stewart’s daytime talk show, MARTHA, and from there the business has continued to grow.
Ed not only designs and sells stencils, but he uses the stencils himself to create custom pieces. His work can be seen in Long Island City’s Z Hotel and throughout the rooms of New York’s Ace Hotel (his 7 foot bear can be spotted in Ace’s lobby).
We are thrilled that Ed has given us the scoop on some of his favorite stencils!
