Seth Globepainter is one of the world’s best known street artists. For the last 15 years he has been working around the theme of childhood. JOSEPH FORD and Seth met when they were artists in residence at MAUSA museum of street art in Alsace last year.
JOSEPH FORD loved his work and suggested collaborating together to do a knitted camouflage picture.
He had painted a series of murals around the Marché des Batignolles in the 17th in Paris, all based on children’s books. It was tough to choose which one to photograph, the whole series is inspiring, but in the end this one seemed the most playful. Hope you all recognise the story?
Seth also posed in front of another one of his murals, based on Les Contes du Chat Perché by Marcel Aymé. The sweater was knitted specifically for the first picture so doesn’t blend as well but I love the mural.
