Mural Art: Sten & Lex Big in Europe

Ha! Yesterday, I suspected, that “it seems to be mural art time for a lot of urban artists”, because so many beautiful and huge mural artworks spring up around the globe. Today I feel confirmed, because of that great new mural artwork, the Italian street art duo Sten & Lex recently created in Lyon, France.

Sten and Lex are very popular for their more or less unique styled large-scale prints, hand-drawings and stencil artworks, they left in a huge number of cities. Recently, a few weeks ago they beautified Rome with a two mixed poster mural showing famous football player Totti and a wolf – looks impressive!

Unlike many street artists, we do not have a artistic background. Ten years ago we started using a stencil when the idea of street art did not have much legitimacy in Italy.

The technique we use is called “hole school” and consists of stencils with many holes of different sizes that all together provide a highly photographic image. This technique was also often used for printing newspapers in the Sixties and Seventies. (Sten & Lex interview)

I’m looking forward to hear about other new mural artworks…
