For anybody who has seen Banksy's Exit Through The Gift Shop, stencil art and street art might have become a bit of a puzzle. (Thanks a lot Mr Brainwash.)

Casey Gray's stencil artworks are big fluorescent mash-ups. The artworks are made from hand-cut stencils and are layered until infinity, creating busy, hectic pieces that seep stories and organised chaos. According to his website, Gray's paintings pertain to "the turmoil of the human heart and the spectacled nature of contemporary existence".

Gray's paintings are symbol-heavy – mixing nature with pop culture, sexuality with wealth, fear, humour – it's all covered, from cheetahs to clowns, guns, diamonds, cars to repeated images of Fred Astaire. (The jungle themes and guns are a little reminiscent of M.I.A.'s stencil works circa 'Galang'.)

Gray completed both a Masters in Fine Arts (Painting) and a Bachelor of Arts (Painting and Printmaking) in California and has been exhibiting his works for four years. Right now he has a solo show at White Walls in San Francisco that will run until August 7th.

Oh wow. Likey likey! It's a little like a grown up version of those ink blot butterflies that I used to make as a kid.
