Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 22, 2012
Tonight in Paris, famed stencil artist C215 will be opening an exhibition of works that are stained glass windows at Saint Louis chapel, in La Salpétrière public hospital, Paris. Considering C215's stencil works already appear to be mosaics when created on the street, to see him transform into stained glass works seems like a natural progression for the French artist.
