Philippe Baudelocque recently took part in the ongoing BergeStreet event on the banks of the Seine in Paris. Creating one of his signature chalk drawings in public, the Paris-based artist created this interesting, delicate mural inspired by the sculpture of a rhinoceros from the forecourt of the nearby Musée d’Orsay. Baudelocque has been a fan of the museum since his early age, and this is his tribute to it and the “silent but powerful” sculpture (in different perspectives) by Alfred Jacquemard. Along with the drawings of the rhino, the artist wrote the names of his favorite composers that influenced his artistic development and education – Satie, Ravel, Debussy, Berlioz, Bizet, Fauré. read more

Born in 1973 as Christian Guémy, the Paris-based French street artist known as C215 has swiftly moved in to being one of the top stencil artists in the world. He is considered one of the top veterans still in the game, with his moniker derived from a prison cell in which he was once locked away. C215 has been creating street art for about 20 years. He paints, draws, and makes stencils, and he truly enjoys painting in the streets. The stencils make it possible to paint beautiful street art portraits in unauthorized locations. They are often enhanced through the use of graffiti markers. C215 also began using spray painting techniques in 2005. He believes that graffiti is focusing on a name by marking a territory and street art is placing art in the perfect location. read more
