Taking this class in the Summer of 2012 I was exposed to many wornikg artists in the field of graffit and street art, one in particular resonating personally.This week in class I was exposed to a contemporary graffiti artist, Chris Stain. To me his work steps away from the typical “writing” style of the classic graffiti artist and bridges the gap of street art and illustration with very relevant messages to the public. You can tell by his art that Stain has a background in printmaking; his works are very graphically designed and executed. The use of stenciling is a clear and smart way to create works of this nature and it became transparent to me how one could use a simple technique to brilliantly make stunning and poignant works of art.Stain first showed us some of his works. I found it really interesting how in his work he would strive to bring light to the public some social-economic issues or represent the populace of an area where a mural might be placed. Images of kids playing basketball on the streets on a backboard, skaters in a street park, oppressed and over-worked citizens on a factory building, inspirational words on a building in a community where they are needed. Stain explained how most of his work was based on photographs he had. He would take the image(s) that he wished to use and manipulate them in Photoshop and then create a stencil based off the image. Stain then explained to us how you could take an image like that and use it to create large-scale mural work with a projector. The concept was simple, but very clever. The stenciling translates simply and very logically from a small to large size. Stain then gave us a demonstration on how to create the most basic of stencils in Dura-lar, the process once again fairly easy to grasp, he provided step by step instructions in layman terms that I could easily translate to classroom use, evidence that Stain had experience as an educator and to me a great example of the type of teacher he would become. We then took images we had brought in and created our own stencil design. I chose an image my students could relate, yet had enough detail to challenge my own skills. The entire process was a great learning experience that I could easily translate into a project for my students. The delivery of the concept and procedure was spot on; on par with some veteran educators I know. It was evident that Stain had the teaching instinct. Using that gift and applying it to his art was also something I quickly began to admire.The relevance of his art to the community it is placed in was self-evident as Stain regaled us a story of placing a mural piece up that he intended to have a young Caucasian boy shooting a slingshot. After walking around in the city area that the piece was going to be placed he noticed that the populace was more ethnic and thought that it would be an injustice and misrepresentation of the community to keep the mural as planned. He reflected on what he saw and made changes to his design as to make sure that the people in the neighborhood could view his work and appreciate its significance in their own lives and the lives of those around them. To me this is a conceptual and highly empathic way of creating art that is expressive and moving. Knowing you can work within your concepts to find a way to break through and show a community that you are recognizing them and showing them respect through your art is a great way to make your presence known and valued.I know for myself and many other emerging artists it is difficult to let go of “your” vision or even compromise on what it is you are creating to make its relevance reach beyond personal. Making art is something anyone can do; expressing yourself is always a truly personal experience that not everyone can relate to. When you create art like this it doesn’t quite reach the broad spectrum of viewers or public one might intend. As an artist who wants to make a career of their art-making you have to be aware of the community and society you are trying to reach. You also have to know how not to compromise the integrity and importance of your work yet make its applicability reach those for whom it is intended. I believe Christ Stain is one such artist. His work is inspiring and significant, emotional and stunning; his work transcends the typical graffiti stereotypes and reaches its audience in a way that I believe is more impacting and substantial than much of what we as a society have deemed great art that is placed in museums around the world. Art that makes a difference or leaves a lasting impression, art that inspires or causes us to rethink or reevaluate life is far more necessary in our world today.
