C215 is one of those legendary street artists you want to keep on your radar. He’s always on the move creating new art. One day he’ll be painting in Paris and the next he’s transforming the streets of New Delhi. His stencil work spans the globe and captures the essence of the people who inhabit the streets. His main subjects consist of people who are often forgotten or rejected by society and capitalism.
C215’s stencils mostly come from his own photos, but he also collaborates with friends and other photographers for images. His stenciling styling can be seen in two forms. One taking on simplistic layering of two colors to evoke the straightforwardness of his message. The other bursting with color and consisting of 5 or more layers.
“Even though his technique is meticulously refined, C215’s work transcends the formal and seems to get to the core of compassion and belief in the human spirit. Encountering C215’s pieces on the street always makes me happy” Shepard Fairey.
We are excited for C215’s upcoming show at 1AM gallery in September! Please email ANU@1AMSF.COM for art inquiries and catalog requests.

What lies at the core of Hellbent’s art with its brightly color strips and contrasting patterns? You might be surprised to hear that the answer is music. Not only did he base his street name off of the punk musician, Richard Hell, but he names his works after songs that he listens to while creating them. His intense love for music spans a variety of genres that include punk, country, and indie rock.
Besides his floral patterns and incredible stencil work, Hellbent’s work is sometimes distinguished by a jaw bone. He explained that the jaw bone idea came to him after reading a story about Freud’s battle with jaw cancer. The story goes that Freud was saved from a sudden hemorrhage by his hospital roommate – who happened to be a dwarf! Hellbent explains that the jaw also suggests the importance of basic human functions such as speaking and eating.
For “A Major Minority 2015“, Hellbent created three pieces inspired by Joy Division songs. A closer look at each piece reveals subtle intricacies and beautiful patterns that are unique to Hellbent’s style.
Stop by the gallery to see this Brooklyn-based artist’s work until the end of the April.

Okuda San Miguel is a Spanish artist known for his unmistakable style of multicolored geometric prints. Critics point to pop surrealism as a signifying essence that emerges from Okuda’s work. The art that he creates is constantly emphasizing the conflict between nature and our roots. Themes that tie into his work generally revolve around contradictions between existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the false freedom of capitalism. For Okuda, inspiration comes from normal everyday things such as travel, film, music, and the environment. For “A Major Minority 2015”, Okuda skillfully molded anthropomorphic forms and symbols into three captivating pieces.
“Bear Queen” is exceptionally unique because it is a canvas tapestry crafted of yarn. By simply looking into the eyes of the queen, it is easy to see the power that Okuda evokes through his themes.
Outside of “A Major Minority 2015”, Okuda recently participated in Urban Art Biennale 2015 in Germany. This was a significant show for the artist because Urban Art Biennale is an exhibit of over 75 international artists who’re helping to demonstrates how classic street art can easily merge with traditional art forms while maintaining the roots of the urban art world.
Come experience the vibrancy of Okuda’s art for yourself at the 1AM Gallery from now until April 22nd. For prices and art inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
