Converse x Seth Pimentel

Forever Creative – With Every Footstep 

Seth Pimentel, a.k.a African Ginger, is a Johannesburg born and raised artist whose skills lie in visual art and illustration. His distinguishable art style finds inspiration in hip hop culture, skate culture, punk culture and Johannesburg youth culture, as Seth loves to combine various styles into works of art that really speak to who he is and present a unique visual aesthetic.

 

 
Seth spends approximately 12–15 hours on a piece of work, and many have said that his dedication to creating what he feels is what truly sets him apart from his peers. In addition to his visual art aesthetic, Seth has a distinctive sense of style and is never afraid to push the boundaries of streetstyle and fashion. It has lead him to becoming a photographic muse and model for numerous collaborations with the cool kids on the ground.
