Sten & Lex, Stencil Poster
The Roman duo, renowned worldwide for their iconic work both on the street and in various galleries, began working together in 2001. Since then, they have continued to refresh and reinvent the application of their medium by introducing new methods and developing their style from the early days of the “Hole School” to what we see today in the “Stencil Poster” technique. Their innovative approach towards stencil making has received much deserved attention from gallerists, curators, and collectors from around the world and now Drago recognises this talent in its second publication of Sten&Lex’s work. A brief statement from the artists complements the eighty-three images in the book with each page presenting the reader with an original piece made exclusively for the publication. These hand-cut, hand-painted creations depict anonymous portraits reduced to panels of black and white parallel lines.
