Chris Stain is inspired by the graffiti movement that exploded in the 1980s in neighborhoods throughout America. He uses printmaking and street art to illustrate the struggles of the unrecognized and underrepresented individuals of society, striving to inspire compassion for the less fortunate. Stain’s work in America Now addresses the concept of public protest while adapting images that reflect historical themes of the working class.
