'Peace' by C215 Sends Out a Positive Global Message

The French street artist Christian Guémy, who goes by the name of C215, recently unveiled his latest graffiti entitled Peace. Located at Vitry-sur-Seine, a suburb of Paris, France, this touching piece is beautiful because it doesn't only communicate a positive and important message, but it does it through a stunning artistic composition.

This street art features an image of a mother holding her baby close to her body. Both figures are made up of the word peace that has been translated in multiple languages to make this piece relevant to many cultures in the world. Using a bright white color, this positive graffiti magically stands out from the background, which looks like a destroyed or abandon house. This clever juxtaposition highlights the contradiction between the word peace and the decaying surroundings.

The mind-blowing motherly graffiti by C215 is a symbol of love and peace in an apocalyptic world.
