Born in 1973 as Christian Guémy, the Paris-based street artist known as C215 is one the world’s top stencil artists. He is considered a veteran of the urban visual art world. His moniker comes from the prison cell in which he was locked up. C215 has been creating street art for about 20 years; he paints, draws, makes stencils and truly enjoys doing it in the streets. He believes that graffiti is about marking a territory with a name while street art is about placing art in the perfect location. His entire focus lies on creating portraits for individuals such as elders, children beggars or refugees. Each of his stencils has its own story and can be found across the globe in many cities.
