Daily Street Art: C215's stencils and new art @ THE WALL!

We're really digging the Parisian artist C215's mosaical, stenciled portraits, which are currently gracing bleak slabs of city concrete across the globe. Stenciling is the old stand-by for street art and graffiti artists, but when it's done with a certain amount of creative vision, not to mention precision, it can be one of the more impacting methods. C215's portraits are pieced together by lines and shapes that feel like years worth of cracks or erosion, and the result is strikingly intimate, in a similar way to Swoon, but with a slightly different style. He's got a whole gigantic slew of his artwork on his MySpace, but we'll give you a sense of what we're talking about, below.

We also found some local stencils worth mentioning, by an unknown artist, and  - drumroll, please - there's some new art going up on the Wall in Central Square, which we've gushed about before, and was starting to look a bit tattered due to peeling wheatpasted art, and some not-so visually (but inevitable) interesting defacement. Feast your eyes on the new stuff!

Not in Boston (but everywhere else: New York, Rome, etc.): C215
