To mark the new 8th edition of Urban Art Fair, street artist Seth has taken over Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées with an imposing, colorful and poetic sculpture. It can be admired in the atrium of the Parisian department store from Tuesday April 16 to Monday April 29, 2024.

Attention Seth fans! The French street artist, famous for his paintings of faceless children immortalized all over the world, is back in the news this spring. After a fine retrospective at Fluctuart, an exhibition at the Musée en Herbe and a sculpture installed for a few days in the Louvre district, Seth is now taking over the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées for the 8th edition of theUrban Art Fair.

The famous international urban art fair, scheduled to take place from April 25 to 28, 2024 at the Carreau du Temple, is offering carte blanche to the street artist, also known as a"globe painter". To surprise customers visiting the Parisian department store, as well as lovers of urban art, Seth has created an imposing sculpture, both colorful and poetic. The sculpture, featuring a child sitting on a pile of cubes with his head submerged in a cloud, can be seen in theatrium of Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées in Paris from Tuesday, April 16 to Monday, April 29, 2024.

Entitled"Jusqu'au ciel", this work is a continuation of the work Seth has been doing for several years now. Once again, it celebrates the imagination of children.

Please note that this carte blanche by Seth is part of theUrban Art Fair's " hors les murs " program.

And that's not all, as clouds created by children also hang from the store entrance. In addition, artist Seth unveils an impressive colorful vortex deployed over the entire main staircase. The anamorphosis opens a passageway to another dimension and a world as bewitching as it is poetic, a secret of the artist.
