STEN & LEX – Stencyl artists from Italy

Pioneers of “Stencil Graffiti” in Italy, started operating in Rome in 2001. The first stencil depicting icons of b-movies, like most of the tradition of Stencil Art, but the search soon leads them to represent anonymous faces of students taken from college yearbooks of the 60 ‘and 70’.
A parallel trend is that of prints and engravings; Sten & Lex incorporate details of stamps, notes and illustrations of the past, such as those of Gustave Dore, and make monumental painting on large posters (4-6 meters high ) and attacking them on the street illegally. Often in their works rework elements of religious and church, their tone is irreverent and action is part of a recovery of classical revived subjectively by the two artists.
Their importance in the international arena is due mainly to the introduction of the use of half-dyeing technique in the stencil. Their stencils are composed of points, pixels, lines and images that make sense. The technique in question has been defined by themselves HOLE SCHOOL.
