C215 (see his Stenicil Archive here)
Nina je t'aime
September 13 - October 4, 2014
White Walls is pleased to present the new work of Parisian stencil artist, C215, in his third solo exhibition with the gallery titled Nina je t’aime.
"C215's art captures a light, depth, and humanity that is difficult, and rare using stencils, his chosen medium. Stencils tend to flatten images and make them static, but C215 has developed a style of illustrating and stenciling that yields an impressionistic illumination of his subject's character."
"Even though his technique is meticulously refined, C215's work transcends the formal and seems to get to the core of compassion and belief in the human spirit. Encountering C215's pieces on the street always makes me happy." - Shepard Fairey
This sense of humanity is seen more in this body of work than ever before. In Nina je t’aime, C215 works solely on canvas using highly detailed hand-cut stencils and a vibrant color palette to create ten 24 x 36 inch portraits of muse and beloved daughter, Nina.
