Christian Guémy, alias C215, born in France in 1973, is a major French artist in the street art scene.
C215's works are mainly human-sized to be as close as possible to reality and passers-by, with the exception of some more imposing wall creations. Sparkling colours and a particularly refined lighting will emerge. We will perceive the character of his models through the features and expressions that are depicted. The faces come alive and blow a wind of poetry on the city.
For the artist, street art must blend in with its environment, interact with the elements that compose it and demonstrate a true aestheticism. Its primary reference is none other than Ernest Pignon Ernest, a guardian figure of street art in France.
Since then, his work has spread beyond the capital and its suburbs to the whole world, both on the streets and in museums. It can be recognized by its graphic signature, symbolizing a cube in which is inscribed its blaze C215.
