Julien Malland, also known as Seth, has once again made a triumphant return to China. The renowned painter usually is known for his outdoor work, and that has been his usual method in previous trips here, but now he is taking his talents to the gallery, M50 to be specific.
Now he is telling the stories that he once told on the walls of the shikumen, this time on carefully selected canvas. This way it might last a bit longer, as all of his previous works have been destroyed to make way for construction.
The city is morphing into something new, and Seth’s effort serves as a valuable link to the past.
