Just as an animal is born as the perfect example of its specimen, French artist SETH reminds us that our children are the same. Pure, inquisitive, and unpolluted by the teachings or experiences they have not yet had. In his latest mural for STADT.WAND.KUNST (SWK) entitled “Skipping School”, SETH took this idea a little further. With a toolbox consisting of Montana GOLD cans, paint brushes, acrylic paint, crayons, rope, and brushes, he created a world fit for a little king, or queen.
“Skipping school” / “L’école buissonnière” 2020, Mannheim Mozart School
“Skipping School” shows three school children carrying a flag which within it shows the freedom of a blue sky. Open for interpretation, the sky invites us to dream again like when we were kids. The children themselves do not face the viewer. Leaving a sense of mystery as to what they look like, what they are thinking, or what they may be feeling? The leader, drumming a snare drum to his own beat, leads the two girls behind him in what is bound to be a new adventure. The mural painted for SWK, calls the Mozart Schule in Mannheim home. Taking three days to create, we are sure it will leave pleasure behind for those that see it for many more. Take a moment to see SETH’s artwork here.
