Lambros’s style of stenciling pays homage to the Masters of 18th Century Engraving. Lambros merges his meticulous esthetic with elements from Art Nouvea, Modern Art, and Graffiti. Further, his trademark style is known worldwide for it’s recurring themes of Power, Lust and Rebellion.
"I push paint."
Rene has taught art & design for almost two decades. His specialty is teaching young people the art of nicking photos from the internet and using photoshop to convert the image so that a stencil can be made. Rene stresses to his students that he can not teach them to be conceptual, but he is quick to advise them to just rip off other peoples concepts because the art world as a whole doesn't care.

Combining his love for architecture and art, Otto began painting creative pieces with one-of-a-kind urban contemporary themes. Originally starting with oil paint on canvas, Otto explored various styles and mediums from collages, to illustrations, to stencil free-hand spray paint on canvas and walls.
