I discovered Chris Stain's stunning work a few months ago when I saw this character on a sticker on NYC's Rivington Street. I was tempted to remove the sticker, but I didn't. (Someone else did a few days later!) I rediscovered Chris Stain's work at the Black Rat Press Gallery on London's Rivington Street. It is hauntingly beautiful.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
