Characters by SETH

4bis-crop


Walking randomly in the streets of the 13th district in Paris, a friend of ours discovered nice murals painted by SETH, the French street artist who traveled the world to learn different street art techniques to then bring them home, for our pleasure!

SETH, or Julien Malland his real name, started doing graffiti in the 90′s before travelling the world and more precisely Asia (China, India, Cambodia…) and the US doing collaboration work with local artists.

This year, he took part in the great event called Les Lézards de la Bièvre, organized for the last 13 years in Paris 13th. (week-end of the 8th of June 2013). He did a huge mural on 2 rue Deslandres – 75013.

Each year, Les Lézards de la Bièvre invite an artist and give them the right to do what they want, to paint all over a ‘parcours’ in the district, from an artist workshop to another. Then, passers-by can walk the course, discovering new street art pieces. I remember 2012 with Philippe Baudelocque, 2011 with Dacruz, and 2001 the first year, with the famous Miss.TIC

He did a really nice job, and these are a few of the pieces found:

SETH is mainly a painter, an illustrator, a photo reporter, a traveller, an editor… and loves to be open to others and to practice on the streets. To know about his travels, read his book “Globe Painter” published in 2003 which tells his story.

    J’ai découvert Seth cette année (logique ^^), je trouve l’idée rudement bien faite; La Butte aux Cailles en regorge !
    Les Lézards de la Bièvre ont toujours de bonnes initiatives décidément.
