In the context of a pandemic where the major part of the world population is confined, Saype seizes the opportunity of the Swiss semi-confinement
to offer us an optimistic and full of freshness work entitled “BEYOND CRISIS“.This fresco of more than 3000 m2 evokes the construction of a more united and more human world transcribed by this little girl who looks towards the horizon. This farandole drawn in an arc, which reminds us of the shape of the corona virus, reminds us that it is in these moments of crisis that we must look together to the future. Between innocence and encouragement, this work illustrates the universal resilience of humans to fight the virus and draw a more harmonious world.
Guillaume Legros alias Saype (contraction of Say Peace) creates monumental frescoes on grass and on the ground. He is the inventor of an eco-responsible paint composed in particular of chalk and charcoal. He is recognized as the pioneer of an artistic movement linking street art and landart. His approach and his innovative technique earned him the nomination in 2019 by the famous magazine Forbes as one of the thirty most influential people under the age of thirty, in the field of art and culture. His poetic and ephemeral works travel around the world to impact attitudes with respect for nature.
