Chistian Guémy’s (otherwise known as C215) art has been influenced by Stencil pioneers such as Blek Le Rat, though his Classical remastering of Caravaggio or religious icongraphy and Banksy through his exploration of animals. However it’s C215‘s celebration and social anthropologic commentary of forgotten souls, street/homeless that celebrate global and cultural diversity that Christian Guémy is most celebrated for. These portraits have reenergised the stencil art scene introducing a new complexity of stencil and through the sighting of this work globally and narrative/questions raised.
C215 or Chistian Guémy is one of our featured artist in our 2011 GCSE Art/Textiles exam brief entitled ‘People and Places’ and we have interpreted C215‘s visual language through a combination of drawing, serigraphy and appliqué.
