See Me

June 23, 2011

Homeless men, street kids, old women, stray cats ~ disenfranchised individuals, marginalized persons, the forgotten: Parisian artist Christian Guémy (aka C215) brings them into the light, before our eyes, all over the globe, in the streets . . . in stencils.  His images are as haunting as the man himself is amiable.

Here are a few which move me.  Follow the link to his flickr gallery for so much more:

An interview with Monsieur Guémy by Urban Art Core is transcribed here and a brief YouTube interview opens a window onto the artist’s heart.  Good work.  Good art.  Art Works.
