Local-Inspired Graffiti

Seth Globepainter Endeavors to Create Native-Worthy Street Art

— June 21, 2012 — Art & Design
Seth Globepainter lives by his adopted name. A global graffiti artist, he travels around the world to grace urban walls with his artistry. He doesn't simply focus on whatever goes on in his head. Instead, Seth Globepainter endeavors to decorate the exteriors of buildings with artwork that speak to the locals themselves. He depicts characters that look like or symbolize the native people.

Cute and colorful as any cartoon character, there is something geniune and affectionate about Seth Globepainter's street art. This is especially the case since he documents his work through photography with local men, women and children often making an appearance with big grins. From China to South Africa and everywhere in between, Seth Globepainter has quite the impressive portfolio.
