Another great stencil artist is Blek Le Rat. Blek Le Rat is 65 years old and he now knows that life goes very fast and time is precious. The last 30 years went so fast that today the need of leaving a part of himself through his work is very important to him. In an interview for Street Art London in 2013 he said:
“I try to find a connotation between the environment and my character, which in my opinion is one of the most interesting experiences in street art. For example: If I leave a line of sheep on the front of a cinema the meaning will be different than if I leave a line of sheep on the front of a shop of a butcher and people will react differently. This is the great strength of street art.”
