This is Blu‘s first time in Africa, although he did have an art work on display in Cape Town last year. He painted another great commentary piece near the Melilla/Morocco border about the security on European borders to keep people out.
Thousands of people pass through the border every day to buy imported products to re-sell in Morocco.
With his bright, colourful and highly detailed stencils, Christian Guémy a.k.a C215, is probably one of the worlds best stencil artists. A graffiti artist for over 20 years, he put up his first stencil in 2006 and has since painted in cities all across Europe as well as in India and South America. His work mainly focuses on portraiture and has been featured inside many galleries across the globe.
Hailing from France, C215 has crossed the Mediterranean on more than one occasion, painting in the streets of African countries Morocco and Senegal. One thing he is known for is not going out to paint, but taking his paint with him - everywhere he goes!
