Latest knitwear image in collaboration with knitwear artist, Nina Dodd.
I met Julien Malland AKA Seth Globepainter when we were both artists in residence last summer at MAUSA Vauban. I loved his work and suggested collaborating together to do a knitted camouflage picture.
He had painted a series of murals around the Marché des Batignolles in the 17th arrondissement 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?
Julien 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 but I love the wall.
A big thank you to Stanislas Belhomme and Clémentine Lemaître who invited me to exhibit at MAUSA and introduced me to Seth.
