In the summer of 1984 the art of graffiti writing spread throughout Stain's Baltimore neighborhood like an epidemic. It captured the imagination of many pre-adolescent youth looking for ways to express themselves outside the norms of school and mundane playground sports. He was one of those kids who became infected by graffiti's bold color, striking form, and independent nature. As time went by he investigated other avenues of art such as printmaking and graphic design. For the past 11 years his medium of choice has been aerosol paint, an X-Acto knife and Dura-Lar. The objective of the book is to bring to light the stories of the often overlooked individuals of society.
