C215 is going strong

C215 street art in Barcelona

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll have seen several posts about the work by street art artist C215. And that’s really not very surprising, because he visits Barcelona quite frequently, is very good, and is very prolific.

He is star at portraiture and his work reflects the faces of both young and old people he cares deeply about (friends and family) or those that live a precarious life on the streets. Additionally, he also loves to portray cats, and does so with incredible detail and (as with all his work) a great sense of colour. What you might not know, is that he has been doing a lot of large scale work this year, both in his native France and elsewhere. Unfortunately, we don’t have one of his huge pieces (for example such as this one) in Barcelona yet, so Christian Guémy, if you read this… you know what to do! ;)

C215 loves Alice – Carrer Tamarit

I can’t help it, I’m a hopeless romantic. Moved by stories of the “happily-ever-after”, empathetically gutted by those of heart break. Imagine my delight at finding evidence of a love story – graffiti style on the corner of Carrer Tamarit with Carrer Comte d’Urgell! Graphic declarations of admiration and love by C215 and Alice for one another on different sides of the same traffic light control box. Aaaah, how sweet!

Carrer Sepúlveda

C215 has become one of my favourite stencil artists, and with good reason! His use of colour is superb, and his subject matter confronting in a gentle way. Coinciding with the ‘unveiling’ of a commission in Tudela, I thought it might be nice to share a few of C215 beauties from around Barcelona with you. Enjoy!

Carrer Cardenal Casañas

For the past year or so, I have been spotting more and more work by French graffiti artist Christian Guémy, otherwise known as  C215, on Barcelona’s streets, and I have to say that I love it!  Colourful, intricate and stylish portraits, stenciled onto all kinds of flat surfaces around town. Too beautiful to keep from you, so here is a selection for you to enjoy…
