Chris Stain & Armsrock at Ad Hoc: “I KNOW THERE IS LOVE”

Chris Stain & Armsrock

August 7th – Sep 6th 2009

Opening Reception: Friday, August 7th, 7-10pm

Chris Stain first became infected by graffiti’s bold colors, striking form, and independent nature as a child in the summer of 1984. As time went by he investigated other avenues of art such as print making, graphic design, and screen printing. Stain’s work is a direct reflection of the people, neighborhoods, and struggles that are swept along with the every day lives of the common American. It is his hope that through the work he will be able to convey the importance of the role of the less recognized individual of society.
