This show is the first exhibition ever in China of the famous young Italian duo, the most innovative at this moment: STEN LEX. Pioneers in their use of stencil in Italy, STEN LEX invest the streets of Rome since 2001. They quickly obtained international fame thanks to their impressive portraits of anonymous people pasted in the cities across the world. Invited by Banksy to the Cans Festival in London in 2008, recently seen at the Open Walls Festival in Baltimore and in the exhibition Vues sur Vues in Belgium, STEN LEX’s work is internationally recognized and valued by museums. In 2012, they entered the MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art of Roma) collection for which they made a monumental in situ work.

The exhibition offers a complete overview of STEN LEX’s work, from black & white as well as full color works from their latest researches. At the crossroads between Op Art (Optical art), photography and stencil, STEN LEX’s work is characterized by a highly developed technical finesse adapted to a monumental scale. This practice, called the hole school, consists in hand-cutting meticulously hundreds of lines. By an optical effect, these lines compose the final picture.

Portraits found in archives from the 60s and 70s or drawn by the artists themselves are their raw material. These faces of people from another era who seem emotionless evoke memory and time passing. Paper strips from the stencil intentionally remain, as unfinished.


画廊将于2013年3月16日至4月30日举办一对以革新而知名的意大利青年艺术家组 合STEN LEX在中国的首个个展。STEN LEX自2001年于罗马街头,以创新孔版画技法奠定了他们在艺术圈内的先锋地位。他们在世界各地的城市街道里创作匿名肖像,给人们留下深刻地印象,并很 快名扬四海。他们曾受Banksy的邀请参加了2008年伦敦“涂鸦喷灌”艺术节(Cans Festival, London),近期还在巴尔的摩的“开放墙面”艺术节(Open Walls Festival, Baltimore)及在比利时的专题展《Vues sur Vues》上露面。并且,STEN LEX在博物馆业内也受到很高评价。2012年,他们的一件作品被罗马当代艺术博物馆(MACRO, Museum of Contemporary Art of Roma)挪移原位,驻入馆内。

在MD画廊的展览涵盖了STEN LEX 各时期的作品一览, 从经典的黑白作品到近期的彩色作品尽收眼底。 STEN LEX的作品把精湛的工艺技术放大成巨幅作品,结合欧普艺术、摄影与孔版画为一体。这种艺术形式包括手工裁剪技艺,被艺术家命名为“Hole School”。通过视觉幻象效果,被裁剪过的纸条形成了最后的图像。

两位艺术家的原材料源自于60、70年代的旧刊物,或者原创画作。这些活在另一个时代的人像,即便面无表情,也禁不住激起人们对过往的追思。孔版作品上的纸条被刻意地部分保留,部分撕毁,像一件件待完成的作品。

STEN LEX的原位作品对于中国最大的城市之一,上海而言意义非凡。巨幅的室外墙面人像作品将为这个城市带来全新的艺术元素。
