A little break on the blog as I've been having troubles with google services for a while now (blogspot, gmail, google maps). I have trouble loading pages totally. It must be a problem with the servers in my district. So when I upload pictures, either I'm unable to do so or I can't see the pictures. So I'll wait till it works better. This happens pretty often but it's been worse those past 3 days.


Can we really call this one a Stencil ? Well I guess we can since it has the same result. This is a very big one from the rapper artist 'Ceza' (jayzah - meaning punishment, penalty). You can see it between Cihangir and Taksim, behind the Atlas movie Theater (here).

This one is very widespread, you can see it mainly in Cihangir but also in Tesvikiye. You have two different models for this one, a simple one with just the hand contour and another one with two layers. First the yellow hand is spayed then the red contour added. Its size is about 21x17 cm.

This post is not suited for people under 18 y.o. ;)


Bukake is a group sex practice that features a woman being ejaculated on by multiple men. So this one represents the word 'bukake' with a penis ejaculating as a letter 'A'. Mostly seen in Cihangir, he likes to bukake on other stencils as seen on previous post. I re-posted the one from Irem Cagil and the one from Obey Giant. Made by an anonymous artist, its size is about .

Those 2 were made with a marker pen.

Obey Giant

This reproduction of the 'Obey Giant' stencil from artist Shepard Fairey was done by Turkish artist Ari Alpert. He started an underground production company called 'Osman Production' which involves street art, DJing, fashion design, visual arts, ...
First he started by doing Shepard's 'giant', but soon came up with the idea of transforming it. He took the original and added a mustache giving it a Turkish twist. He also added a tag name – Osman. You can see those ones mainly in Cihangir.

Here, with the added mustache. You can see some other stencils in this picture. The ash tray on the wall behind that you can see in a previous post. Ari's stencil is below a DEHAP stencil. DEHAP being a political party that have been bukaked by the way.

This one is on a box of the gas company, you can see the larger picture in the post published 2 days ago, or here.
