Uni, who also goes by Theo, is the guy behind the Jack Kerouac stencils that appeared earlier this year in places that Kerouac either mentioned in his book On the Road or was known to frequent. Uni took on the project because he was dismayed that Francis Ford Coppola had decided to film parts of his On the Road movie adaptation in Canada rather than in Denver, where the writer spent so much time.

At Uncubed, Uni put his gas mask on and took it off as he worked on a multi-layered Kerouac stencil on the interior of the cavernous room. Kerouac was Theo's first major stencil project, and he enjoyed comparing the Denver locales that Kerouac describes with the ones he experienced himself growing up here. Uni is also putting up Kurt Vonnegut, William S. Burroughs and Elliot Smith images these days.
