The works presented at the M Art Center Gallery are the result of days spent walking and painting the streets of the last working-class neighbourhoods of central Shanghai. They are the testimony of Seth’s love for the culture’s traditions that are gradually engulfed under glass and concrete towers. It is a way to repopulate the alleys with laughter from the young Shanghainese who once made these their playgrounds. It is a dream of China, intimately linked to childhood and the universal need to escape a world that is more and more incomprehensible.
This exhibition, divided between interior and exterior works, presents various paintings, sculptures, photos and installations inspired by his creations in the alleys of Shanghai.
