This is a great news that Christian Guémy (alias C215) just released a monography – the first one done by a French artist.
We were so excited to discover it and to share a sneak peek with you…
The book is actually showing a nice collection of the photos of street art pieces C215 has produced since he started. The book is presented from A to Z. Each letter of the alphabet refers to a city where he painted or a theme he has worked on. From his self-portrait work to Zurich, going through all what he did in Vitry-sur-Seine (South burb of Paris) – all pages are illustrated and commented by the artist who makes us dive into his artistic universe.
C215 is keen to play with light and highlights it in his powerful stencils… At StreetLove we admire his artwork and we had followed this artist for a very long time. First piece we saw was in Paris 19th (a couple of portraits and cats stencils) and then in Vitry (of course) where he lives and has his workshop.
We interviewed him a couple of years ago and you can read it here: C215 interview !
Here are a few photos of the book to give you an overview of what you can expect:
The included stencil is a surprise made by the artist, so I’ll let you discover it when buying the book… but sure you wont be disappointed! And maybe this will inspire you to hit the street!
