New knitted camouflage by Joseph FORD c/o COSMOPOLA featuring SETH aka Julien Malland, one of the world’s best known street artists

Joseph FORD c/o COSMOPOLA creates another knitted camouflage addition to his series, this time together with SETH aka Julien Malland, one of the world’s best known street artists. For the last 15 years he has been working around the theme of childhood. Joseph and Seth met when they were artists in residence at MAUSA museum of street art in Alsace last year. Joseph loved his work and suggested collaborating together to do a knitted camouflage picture.

Seth had painted a series of murals around the Marché des Batignolles in the 17th in Paris, all based on children’s books. It was tough to choose which one to photograph, the whole series is inspiring, but in the end this one seemed the most playful. Hope you all recognise the story? Seth also posed in front of another one of his murals, based on 'Les Contes du Chat Perché' by Marcel Aymé. The sweater was knitted specifically for the first picture so doesn’t blend as well.

For the latest picture in the series, @ninadoddknits modelled her knitwear herself. When Joseph scouted out the location he was thrown out by security guards very quickly - a bloke with a medium format digital back was obviously a big threat to public safety in this particular shopping centre. When Nina had finished her knitting magic, Joseph went back and took the pictures as surreptitiously as he can when wielding a large camera. Managed to get the photos done pretty quickly, and beat a hasty retreat when they saw security converging on us.


About - Seth. Born in Paris, Seth began to express himself on the walls of his city in the mid-90s. His preferred terrain, however, was in the 20th district where he became known in the graffiti scene for his specialization of painting characters. Graduate of the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, he published alongside Gautier Bischoff in 2000 the book Kapital, which to this day remains one the best-selling books about French graffiti. Together, they founded Wasted Talent in 2004, a publishing house that specializes in monographs of urban artists. Before becoming a full-tine artist, Seth worked in the creative industries: advertising, cartoons, comics. He painted in the street for his own pleasure. GoSee: seth.fr
