Christian Guémy, a.k.a. C215, was born in Vitry-sur- Seine in 1973, where he still lives and works. He started as an urban stencil artist in 2006. His subjects of choice include childhood, outcasts, unknown faces, lovers, as well as cats. One of his main models is his daughter Nina, born in 2003. Christian’s style ranges from two-colour compositions to wildly colourful works. Starting in 2007, he was part of a project to create a 25-metre long painted wall representing a cat at the "Nationale" metro station in Paris. In 2013, he painted the face of the French Minister of Justice, Christiane Taubira, focus of racist attacks at the time. Known internationally, C215 presents works painted on post boxes and metal sheets in art galleries in France and around the world.
