Sten_Lex_Street_Art_Rome_Stencil_06

Street art takes many forms, Patternbank stumbled across these unique and dynamic murals and thought we’d share. These hand cut, hand painted creations are the work of Rome based Italian street art duo Sten & Lex. Using a technique they call ‘Hole school’ Sten Lex create huge murals that consist of cut out stencils and blown up photocopied imagery. The duo are best known in the history of stencil making for introducing the halftone stencil technique where the main part of their stencil portraits are composed by thousands of lines. Graphic subject matter is a mix of historical and religious figures as well as Lex herself. They are currently showing at Magda Danysz Gallery in Shanghai until the April 30th so definitely worth a look if you are visiting.
