C215

C215’s social justice issue is homelessness.

Hailing from France, C215 started spray painting in 2005 and is today one of the finest, and most productive stencil artists on the street art scene. His art captures a light, depth, and humanity that is difficult, and rare using stencils, his chosen medium. C215s work consists mainly of close up portraits of people. His subjects are typically those on the periphery of mainstream society, such as beggars, homeless people, refugees, street kids and the elderly. The rationale behind this choice of subject is to draw attention to those that society has forgotten about.
