Making a bold, politically charged environmental statement just got easier with Golan Levin’s customizable graffiti stencils. [1]Combining the worlds of data visualization and urban art, Levin’s easy to use artistic toolkit provides a cool way to create readily-digestible information in the form of info-graphics.

Whether used to depict the scale of sea-life depletion, or to advocate for gender equality, the graffiti stencil frames take otherwise dry data and bathes them in a new light.

Levin, an interactive media artist and director of the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry [2]at Carnegie Mellon University, developed this design during a “Speed Project” challenge [3] by the public art initiative Free Art and Technology Lab [4]. The design and instructions are available to download for free online, dismantling financial barriers so that anyone can make their statements public. [5]
