C215 is the name of a street artist who works with the face and figure. The works of C215 are mixed media masterpieces that include spray paint, pochoir, acrylics, canvas, and wood panels. C215 is based out of France and was born in the year 1973.

The artist began to work with spray paint and street art in 2005.

The government name for C215 is Christian Guemy.

For his palette C215 uses either many colors, or restricts his choice to two colors.

Like many of street artists he likes to portray everyday people in their everyday life. These include beggars and the homeless.

Price range information: Works range from $5,000 to $30,000 for originals. From time to time the artist produces prints.

C215 has made wonderful street art across the globe. In this clip we tag along on a visit to Oslo, Norway:

This artist is great at letting the viewer grasp the emotion of his characters.

The artist works with stencils, but also creates work freehand.
