French artist C215 has painted a number of portraits around the area including two large scale pieces on Tariff street and Spear Street, a number of smaller stencils and, rather obscurely, a number of cats. His topic this time was homelessness. Anyone walking through the centre of Manchester will know that this has been the city’s dirty little secret with politicians only now beginning to acknowledge the scale of the problem. C215 is well known for painting people on the fringes of society. He will often feature the homeless, the elderly, street kids and refugees..
Born in 1973, Christian Guémy is a Paris-based French street artist and top stencil artist known as C215 - derived from a prison cell in which he was once locked away.
