Acclaimed French street artist Seth Globepainter recently launched a new exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai. Entitled “Like Child’s Play,” the show puts on a diverse display of sculptures, paintings, installations, and photographs depicting his wall murals created all across the city. As a whole, Globepainter’s child-like characters are reinterpreted in playful new compositions while touching upon Chinese culture and societal issues such as urbanization.
“While wandering in Shanghai, I noticed that many old neighborhoods are making way for skyscrapers, and the city is busy transforming itself into a modern one. But, as an artist, I would like to remind my audience to pause in their steps and search for beautiful memories instead,” the artist told Shanghai Daily.
