Chris Stain has a book coming out ths month from Drago Books. One of the earliest artists to discover and support Stencil Archive, Chris Stain has always personified the community-mindedness, radicalness, and kindness that the stencil scene tends to exhibit. While on tour with "Stencil Nation," a young artist in Baltimore recalled a childhood memory of Chris showing him how to use spraypaint... and then giving him some cans to take home and use. This small act changed this artist's life, and neatly shows what a great person Chris is.
Read the interview Stencil Archive had with Chris Stain back in 2002.
And if you live in New York, go to this great show (which will include long-time Stencil Archive collaborator Josh MacPhee).
