These inspiring designs of cats that adorn the streets in France are captivating.

France’s answer to Banksy is one talented artist known as Christian Guemy or more commonly, C215. The Parisian has traveled the world extensively with spray cans in tow as he artistically illustrates what he personally depicts as “things that society strives to keep concealed and undisclosed.”

Part of his general art works involves creatively depicting issues relating to refugees, the homeless, street kids and smokers among other topics that the majority would consider controversial or touching.

This time, however, C215 has gone a little bit away from his known field by exemplifying incredible faces of friendly felines as they prowl the streets. He puts forth his unique brand of stencil art by showing the faces of cats peering out from walls, trash bins and other mysteriously rugged surroundings.

Even though his “cats” arts are mainly street art, C215 believes that his art is not vandalism and shouldn’t be categorized as such.

“I strongly reject that I’m a vandal. This is based on my belief that street art can inventively change the city and the daily lives of its residents,” he says.

Here’s a collection of some of his most attractive and cool cats illustrations that’ll possibly make you love cats.
