The artist Saype reveals his latest giant artwork in Oman. French-Swiss artist, created a giant landart painting on March 11th, 2023 at the Ibri solar farm, Ibri 2 IPP Project, in Oman. With an overall area of 11’250 square meters, this artwork titled « Towards good ideas? » was created using biodegradable pigments made out of charcoal & chalk. This work questions us about our relationship to energy, and the new solutions to get out of fossil fuels.
In each of his works, Saype captures the fragility of our societies and the challenges that we are all called upon to face, immortalizing the ephemeral character of the monumental frescoes he creates on grass, soil, sand and snow around the world.
New York, Paris, Venice, Geneva, Cape Town, Turin, Dubai, Nairobi, Istanbul, Ouagadougou, Miami, (…) his artworks travel all around the world. His frescoes, which are meant to fade away, aim to impact mentalities with respect to nature, since they are created with eco-friendly and biodegradable paint composed mainly of chalk and charcoal.
Energy management is certainly one of the major challenges of our everaccelerating world. Our contemporary civilization was built on fossil fuels, but today we must look to the future and seek sustainable solutions to keep earth habitable. It is with the major ecological issues of our time in mind that I chose to paint in one of the largest solar farms in the Middle East (11,3 km²).
Being aware that the solution centers around a complex energy mix and in a form of sobriety, I chose to paint this child playing with the magic of solar energy. Looking towards the horizon, he symbolizes the renewal of a civilization that must now reinvent itself to continue to grow without destroying the planet.
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
