Stavanger, Norway

Chris Stain is an American artist and purveyor of social-realist stencil-based work. He has been creating artwork in public space since witnessing what NYC subway graffiti had to offer in the 1980s. Having studied printmaking techniques in high school, Stain retains a graphic feel to his work, not unlike one you would typically associate with screen-printed posters. His artwork often examines the lives of those from underrepresented environments, both rural and urban, seeking to illustrate the triumph of the human spirit despite our physical or social conditions.
