A copy in good condition of one of the first books ever published around the art of Christian Guémy aka C215.

Christian Guémy, alias C215, est une figure incontournable de la scène du street art international. Il n'a d'ailleurs de cesse de peindre partout où il se trouve, New-Delhi, Londres, Istanbul, Fès, Rome, Barcelone, Paris, sans autorisation et à visage découvert. Chaque pochoir est pensé et créé sur place de manière à se fondre dans son environnement, et interagir avec ses habitants. Sa créativité débordante est, sans nul doute, motivée par sa fille Nina. Véritables emblèmes et talismans, les yeux de sa fille sont omniprésents dans toute son oeuvre.

Christian Guémy, also known as C215, has been described as the French answer to the street artist Banksy. Born in 1973, C215, started spray painting in 2005. Today he is one of the most productive stencil and street artists around the globe. 'Street Art' is a collection of his favourite subject matter: portraits of beggars and refuges living daily on the streets of London, Paris and Istanbul. Portraits of his daughter Nina, whom still remains his muse to this date, are also highlighted in this book.
