French street artist C215 certainly knows how to colour coordinate. Whether he uses a rainbow palette or split complimentary hues in his pieces, he manages to combine the perfect colour harmonies to capture the essence of the moment in his intimate portraits.

From pensive clowns to brooding gents, and even french bulldogs that are just a little too-cute, his intricate multi-layered stencils inject refined beauty into concrete jungles across Europe.
