Seth GlobePainter paints Mural in Dubai

The journey around the globe of french graffiti artist SETH has reached another destination. SETH, who is also known as THE GLOBEPAINTER, recently finished work on his mural in the context of DUBAI STREET MUSEUM. With his work he joins the previous line-up of amazing artists like 1010, CASE and ERNEST ZACHAREVIC, who finished their work through the last days at the 2nd of December Street in the district of Al Satwa. The current mural of SETH shows two children – a boy in traditional clothes and a girl with pigtails wearing a flowered dress – standing on the roof of an entrance to take a look through the windows to the inside of the building. Related to the curated theme „The Past“ the children are having a look behind the modern facades of the United Arab Emirates.
