Gagarin's 50th anniversary stencil

Last week I was at the first edition of The International Graffiti/Street Art Festival in Timisoara, where MadC, Omsk167, Caparso and 60+ romanian graffiti writers and stencil makers had over 6 locations to make some art.
Besides some organization problems, those 3/4 days were full with activity.
New friends, nice weather and a good turn out for me in this festival, as I got the best and hard to reach location, after I was left without a wall and some materials.

* On 12 April 1961, after Yuri Gagarin became the first human to journey into outer space, he said "I don't see any God up here", quote that remained in my mind for some while.
** In 2011 with the occasion of his 50th anniversary, this festival and my 7th year of stencil making, I decided to make a tribute to him. It's obvious for you to know now that I have a passion for astronomy.
*** Because I was expecting a bigger wall, I had to adapt on to this one, so details and some special effects were not made, due to the late notification and the difficult access point that led to days with serious muscle pain. Even so, it was a real pleasure to spray this on half of the bridge's length.

* Snaps with the location and making of.
** Thanks to MC and Noxer for these photos.

* The free film "First Orbit" was made to mark 50 years since Yuri Gagarin climbed into his space ship and was launched into space.
** More about the film here.
*** Enjoy it!


* The Fly, Moon Patrol and Ache77 made some good job over there, despite the unfriendly walls they were given to work on.
** More photos from the festival here.
