Chris Stain

I just came across the work of stencil graffiti artist Chris Stain. I really love his pictures and the general themes he works with. He seems to do quite a bit of street art, but i think he also produces quite alot of his images in other formats too. In fact, the last two pictures i've included very much remind me of some photos by Martha Cooper, one of my favourite photographers - so much so that i reckon he must have based them on her prints.

Chris is a typical rip-off artist,
he is actually from Baltimore the same town as Martha, and has gotten permission from her to incorporate her imagery in his work.

There's a bunch of interviews and stuff written about chris online, but don't believe a word of it.
you can check his stuff out at

Thanks for your comment. Yeah i found his stuff on and i discovered after i wrote the post that he had got permission from Martha to use her images. Thanks for the other link though.
