The good people at Street Art London have kindly documented some new work from C215 in London. C215 was one of the first street artists I was actually introduced to on the streets, rather than on T-shirts, in magazines or on the internet. Living in London whilst at university, I’d frequently pass his stencil work on the streets, clocking his trademark cube numerous times, and I was inspired to find out more.
This past week or so, the Frenchman returned to London for his show at the Signal Gallery with photographer RomanyWG, and couldn’t resist taking to the streets. A number of his pieces have appeared in East London around Shoreditch and the surrounding area. His work is subtle, yet often contains bright splashes of colour – incredibly detailed street portraits that have always captivated me when passing by.
You can catch the collaborative show, named ‘Border Line’, at the Signal Gallery (32 Paul St, EC2A) until the 23rd of July, and check out the below pieces for yourself on Brick Lane, Great Eastern St, Redchurch St, the Truman Brewery, and more. See the rest of the shots at Street Art London.
