Well folks, It's time for a little celebration. Urban-escapades 200th post. I was very enthusiastic when I began this project, but never thought it'd become what it has. Ok - it's a hobby, a fascination, a labour of love, a passion, but there must be a significant number of you who also share my passion (over 9,500 unique visitors to this site so far), so I'm glad to be able to share it with you.
For this post I'm going to share a little London secret with you. A small Shoreditch alleyway called Blackall St. There are 2 reasons for Blackall St being my 200th post. First being: it's a great little alley way which features the creme of the street art scene in an always changing kaleidascope of talent. The second being: one of those artists - one of my favs at the moment... C215.

C215, or Christian Guemy, is an extremely talented stencil artist I've been following (and featuring) for a few years now. Christian is a 36 year old Parisian resident, but spends much of his time traveling the globe with his work, bringing joy to all that find it. His distinctive style of portraiture sets him apart from the rest - an inspiration to artist and artistic observer alike.
Rather than cut and paste the highlights of his illustrious career from a variety of sources, I thought I'd provide you with a link where you can browse a selection of interviews from the likes of Wooster Clooective, Graffiti Art Magazine, Artasty.com etc, and also check out collections of works from around the world.

Thanks everyone for stopping by, and I look forward to your continued support. Please take a moment when you get a chance and look back through these archives. Kind regards, Mish.
