In honor of his first solo show, ‘Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,’ at the Shooting Gallery, French stencil artist C215 answered a few questions for us, providing thorough answers that not only give insight into his artistic intentions but into his personal character as well. Between studying “catholic theory of Architecture and Painting in XVIIth century, the history of Romanticism in Germany and the birth of Abstract in painting,” being a devout father to an 8 year old daughter and traveling around the world as a practicing and passionate artist it’s incredible to see that C215 still found time to create such a thoughtful solo show. Come see ‘ Smoke Gets in Your Eyes ,’ opening tomorrow from 7-11pm. Read the full press release and RSVP Here More After the Jump I’ve heard a few accounts of your name coming from a cell number you’ve spent too much time in.
C215′s street art represents an exploration of animals, architecture, freedom and those forgotten about by society all in incredible detail and against a backdrop of overlooked places. C215′s real name is Christian Guémy but he goes by his artistic identity, ‘C215′. He has put work up all over the world in India, Israel, Poland, the USA, Senegal, Russia, Morocco, his home-country of France and of course, London. C215 talks with Street Art London about the subjects and themes that have inspired him to become a full time artist. He tells us about Nina, his daughter, who is already becoming a street artist in her own right and he lets us in on a pretty crazy Friday afternoon stunt he pulled in the middle of London.
