C215's New London Stencil Portraits

French street artist C215 visits London installing a series Stencil Portraits across the city

French stencil artist Christian Guémy aka C215 has been hitting East London's Brick Lane with several new multi-layered colorful stencil pieces. With each new visit to London, the artist's work seems to become more complex and the level of detail that goes into these street art portraits continues to blow us away.

The street artist has been in town the last few days on route to Dublin, Ireland for this year's OFFSET festival. Now in its third-year OFFSET has now become Dublin’s premier creative festival and this weekend will see C215 speak as a guest at the festival in a panel discussion with Irish artist Conor Harrington, Evan Hecox, Von and King ADZ.

Hookedblog founder, Mark Rigney has also been invited to Offset and will be joining the panel, so if you happen to be in Dublin and attending the festival swing by and say hello.

Before leaving London for Dublin, C215 installed six new London street art pieces that we are aware of. Most of the new multi-layered stencil pieces pictured here by the artist were spray-painted on doors and walls along Brick Lane in East London.
