French artist Julien Malland (43) aka Seth Globepainter has become known around the world for his vibrant murals of people, most frequently children, who appear to be sucked into colorful rainbow-like voids. The figures are usually facing away from the viewer, their attention completely swallowed by pools of dripping color revealed behind drab, urban facades. Seth has been active in the Parisian graffiti scene since the 1990s and has written or participated in several books over the last few years.
Often, Seth would collaborate with local artists learning traditional craft from them, and exchanging ideas. A graduate of the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, Julien Malland has painted murals in India, China, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa and in many other countries.
