Spotlight: Blek le Rat

Dec 7, 2017

As a true connoisseur of fine art and fashion, Desert Rose Apparel is excited to shine the spotlight on one of the most influential artists of our time - Blek le Rat. Known as the "Father of stencil graffiti," Blek le Rat has made an indelible mark on the art world with his groundbreaking work that merges street art with political and social commentary.

Who is Blek le Rat?

Born Xavier Prou in Paris, France, Blek le Rat emerged as a pioneer of stencil art in the early 1980s. Inspired by the works of names like Ernest Pignon-Ernest and Vhils, he took stenciling to a whole new level, leaving his mark on walls, bridges, and urban surfaces around the world.

Blek le Rat's iconic style features striking images of human figures, often portraying political activists, musicians, or famous personalities. His art encapsulates deep emotions and powerful messages. By using stencils, he was able to create intricate designs that could be easily reproduced, allowing his work to reach a wider audience.

Artistic Influence

Blek le Rat's art had a profound impact on the street art movement, inspiring countless artists to explore the possibilities of stencil graffiti. Banksy, one of the most renowned street artists today, has credited Blek le Rat as a significant influence on his own work. The two artists share a similar ethos of using art as a tool for provocation and social change.
