Carbon footprint: the unique and free exhibition of street artist Seth
From October 28, 2022 to February 26, 2023, French urban artist Seth is moving to Fluctuart, the world’s first floating urban art center. Does the name of this street artist ring a bell? It’s probably his fresco on rue Buot, in the 13th arrondissement, that caught your attention. He denounces the war in Ukraine, through a scene where a little girl crashes into a Russian tank while brandishing a Ukrainian flag.
But the artist became known long before the buzz that this fresco made on social networks. So he is recognized for children’s paintings that he creates on the walls of buildings around the world.
But at the start of 2023, it is at the Fluctuart center that we find him, for the free and unique exhibition “Carbon Footprint”which plunges us into the heart of his artistic career. We discover his travel diaries, his photos, his paintings, as well as works of street art.
