10 Wishes for 2010, #2, Chris Stain

For ten days we’re presenting ten artists and their wishes for the new year, 2010, in no particular order.  Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are part of the giant explosion of street art in New York.  Individually, each has added their expression of the creative spirit to the decade now ending.

Today’s wish comes from Chris Stain, a Baltimore born stencil artist whose portraits focus on city folk, working folk, kids, moms, and every day heroes.
“I wish for a job with steady pay. After that is taken care of I can work on the rest of the world.”
