PeelThe premier sticker, stencil, and street art magazine
PEEL was the premier sticker, stencil, and street art magazine from 2003 – 2008.
In 2002 Dave and Holly Combs traveled to New York City from Indianapolis, Indiana, to assist with September 11 recovery efforts at Ground Zero. While exploring Manhattan during their off hours, they were inspired by the wealth of stickers they saw all over the city, especially the black and white stickers created by Shepard Fairey declaring that “André the Giant has a Posse”. These stickers made such an impact that the Combses started PEEL, the first street art magazine with a focus on stickers. Over time, PEEL evolved from a black and white DIY zine stuffed into plastic bags to a full-size, glossy, internationally distributed magazine documenting worldwide street art.
