  • The Bekh [Spray] Stencil Book Issue 1 Issue 1 Produced and Handbound by Imad Shawa and Mike V. Derderian
  • Let us all Bekh! Bekh is a limited edition manually bound stencil book that is the first in a series of stencil collections we hope to publish periodically. The project bore out of passion for stencil, an untapped mode of expression in the Arab world. On one hand you have the internet, a vast world of free information where all can participate, and on the other hand you have traditional media, where the message is controlled by a select few. Enter stenciling and graffiti. Stencil graffiti takes the best from both worlds: 1. Anyone can do it; and 2. visibility is huge! This medium of expression is at its most powerful when done on large public surfaces (usually illegally) for an entire community to see. Stenciling as "graffiti" is perhaps one of the more exciting art forms in transmitting a message. There is an element of defiance that is unique and that's what lends it its charm. This first issue of Bekh features artists from Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and Palestine. And each copy of this edition was made with sweat and tears, and long nights of cuttings, aligning, drawing and binding. We hope you enjoy it and tell your friends about it. If you get inspired, do your own stencil art and most likely you'll be featured in the next issue. Amman, March 30th 2012
