First Retrospective Exhibition entitled “Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood”
October 17 – November 8, 2014
Opera Gallery Paris is proud to present the very first retrospective exhibition dedicated to the French Street and Stencil Artist, Christian Guémy, aka C215. In just a few years, C215 has become one of the world’s favorite talents of the current Street Art generation – and one of the rare French artists to fully assume an international career.
The theme of this exhibition, entitled “Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood” spans the entire period of his ten-year career and includes all of the artist’s favorite mediums: posters, cardboard, mail boxes, road signs, recycled wood…
The 35 works of art on display reveal all the intricacy of C215’s favorite subjects: travelling, childhood and adolescence, street life and scenes, animals – including his famous cat, world history, literature, the arts and, of course, the artist’s daughter Nina, who has become the painted eyewitness of her father’s artistic exploration.
