Brooklyn-based stencil artist Chris Stain has transformed LA’s Carmichael Gallery into a New York City rooftop scene, complete with pigeon coop for his first West Coast solo exhibition — Up On The Roof Countin’ Pigeons — featuring his gritty, enigmatic stencil portraits integrated into the large-scale installation, which offers a unique perspective on contemporary inner city life. The show runs until February 26.
