French graffiti artist C215 aka Christian Guémy is travelling the streets of the world, leaving a mark of his journey in a host of unlikely places: decayed buildings, broken boundary walls, rusty rickshaws, rubbish bins. His work can be found in US, Brazil, Israel, Morocco, Poland, France, England, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
Christian’s images are solitary faces and figures, captivating in their loneliness. “Street art is like surfing” he says. “You have to travel to experience new situations, new contexts and new people. I love to place my characters in abandoned buildings. They inhabit those places like ghosts, they underline the life that once was there”.
