Sten and Lex are among the most internationally renowned street artists in the world. The Italian duo has developed an unique technique, the halftone stencil, which allows them to create poetic and powerful pieces influenced by op-art. Sten and Lex first met at the end of medical studies in Rome, while taking a radiology course together. They were profoundly inspired by the material potential of x-ray film, and it was during class that they first began to cut out the skeletal forms, a process which foreshadowed their current practice.

By means of the meticulous use of illustration and verging on almost obsessive technique, Mexican artist Paola Delfín attempts to portray the creative aesthetic of her generation while also depicting a reflective message. Her work is mainly influenced by illustrations, organic forms and a mixture of unusual materials.

“I believe that art needs to be seen everywhere possible, to bring a white wall to life, and make a story out of it. My passion is to create, be available to tell a story with my hands and make it visible to everyone though images that involve you [the viewer] in that story. That feeling is what makes me love being an artist.” Paola Delfin

Sergio Odeith is a Portuguese painter and muralist currently based in Lisbon. He is best known as one of the pioneers of anamorphic 3D graffiti, which create the illusion of spatial depth. All of his artworks are extremely detailed and realistic, almost photographic in their unbelievable precision. His style is also considered obscure and it is called sombre 3D, meaning dark three-dimensional style.
