C215, a mysterious title might which refers to a Pantone color and a chemical formula. But behind this coded name, is an influential street artist Christian Guémy, aka C215, was born in France in 1973.

In 2006, the artist began stencil work, and this activity never left his side since then. He studied history and economics, as he wanted a humanist profile of modern times, and gradually went towards History of Art.

His daughter and basically childhood in general are among his favorite themes, and always present in his work, but C215 also tackles other universal themes. He always has a humanist perspective, he highlights those people who are left out by the society and showcases them. Unknown people turn into stencil stars.

One can perceive the character of his models through features and expressions which are depicted. Faces come alive and inspire poetry all over the city.

According to the artist, street art needs to be one with the environment, interact with its elements and portray true aesthetics. His first reference is Ernest Pignon, a guardian figure of urban art in France.
