Biography / Seth

Julien Malland was born in Paris in 1972. He became Seth in the 90s when he began to paint in the streets of Paris, after graduating from the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris. A multi-talented artist and author, his artworks have been exhibited across the world, including the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017. Looking to open doors to people’s unconsciousness, their youth and their dreams, Malland’s works feature a reoccurring theme of childhood. Seth travels the world, collaborating with local artists to highlight their traditional practices and exchange ideas. Drawing inspiration from his surroundings, he incorporates cultural elements into his art and turns the children into messengers of his investigations. Malland says he puts his characters into difficult social, political or geographical contexts to raise awareness on said issues around the world.
