Outstanding stencil art

M-city is an ongoing street art project by Polish artist Mariusz Waras. The site contains images of the work (various media: grafitti, stickers, billboards, canvas...).
M-city in a first place is a play with the form and space of the city, played on the walls, posters, billboards, stickers and in the virtual world. All of the pieces of M-city - there is about 100 of them - were made as stencils.

The inspiration to the architecture of M-city came mostly from the architecture of Threecity (Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia, Baltic coast, north of Poland) and it's surroundings, but there's no avoiding of motifs from other regions of Poland.

The architecture of the town is in a sense a promotion of groups of people who work together for society. These include independent media, charities, non-governmental organisations, off theatres etc. Most of the project realisations are on especially chosen walls and matching the historical or architectural context of the surroundings.

You can also create your own virtual city in flash, using this on-line "constructor". I played around with it for a while (in case you haven't noticed, it spells two words):
