Street Art in Dublin: C125 Christian Guémy

We can’t claim him as our own unfortunately but C215 has been here and left a few really nice examples of his work around town. As it stands I’ve found four, all within a few minutes walk of Smithfield. His work is mostly portrait style, stencils with a very distinctive flavour that I find amazingly evocative. His philosophy about street art is also interesting, he specifically calls out in this interview that there is a difference (to him) between work that is destined for galleries and that destined for the street. Regarding the latter he makes the point that the street [is there] to devour, transform, smash... In any case Dublin is lucky to have the examples of his work that it has.
