Full Description

“I’ve never made my art because I want to make money. I make it because I believe that my paintings … can change the world.”

Meet C215, a master street artist with a mission. C215 is the pseudonym chosen by Christian Guémy, one of the world’s most important masters of contemporary street art. He became famous in 2008 when Banksy invited him to collaborate on some projects, and today, even though he has the talent to work for galleries or museums, he continues producing his art on the street. See his amazing creations, and get to know him through a series of interviews conducted by Alessandra Mattanza, an expert in international street art. Known for drawing, painting, spray-painting, and personally photographing his works, C215 himself has in fact taken many of the images shown in this eye-opening volume. These photos enrich this intimate portrait of the artist, presenting his vision and his experience on the street. Readers can grasp the essence of his philosophy, and discover his most important works in the cities of Paris, London, Los Angeles, New York, Rome, Istanbul, New Delhi, and Fez as well as in Brazil, Poland, Israel, and Morocco.
