Born in Paris in 1972, Seth Globepainter (Julien Malland) began to express himself on walls in the mid-90s. He is a street artist, painter, and author.

Over the years, Seth has affirmed his name as one of the top artists in the field continuing to create childhood-inspired interventions around Paris and the rest of the world.

Looking to open doors to people’s unconsciousness, their youth, and their dreams, Seths works feature a reoccurring theme of childhood.
Drawing inspiration from his surroundings, he includes cultural elements into his art and turns the children into spokespeople and messengers of his investigations.

Seth, who graduated from the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, says he puts his characters into difficult social, political, or geographical contexts to raise awareness on said issues around the world.

After intensively travelling to over 50 countries during the last two decades, Seth is very much aware of the way globalisation and modernisation are influencing local traditions.

Starting in 2003, he went on a trip around the world to blend with artists from different cultures, and to open up to new ways of living and painting in urban areas. This experience culminated in the book Globe Painter published in 2007, followed by the documentary series Les Nouveaux Explorateurs, where Seth proposed to discover a country through the prism of its urban art.


Graduated from the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris.
