The stencil technique is one of the oldest painting methods in the world. It’s one of the smartest tools possible to spread relatively complex imagery and ideas – for example on city streets using spray paint.

This exceptional masking tool survived thousands of years and developed from being used for cave paintings to being used excessively within one of the current art forms (Street Art / Urban Art) going down in *art history again. Sebastian Schager uses highly complex stencils for some of his gallery work.

Born in Vienna, Sebastian Schager graduated in graphics and communications in 2007, is founding member of the artist group PERFEKT WORLD (2007-2016) and begun to study art history right after college. The group was exhibiting in New York, Berlin and Vienna, just to name a few. In 2016 the group splits and the association and gallery Jan Arnold based in Vienna was founded. Sebastian Schager form this point on works under the name Artis.Love, started a small fashion label Artis.Limited and an enterprise going by the name of LEAP – Limited Edition Art Prints offering small and affordable print editions.
