To show solidarity with the world, a French artist known for his massive works of graffiti on grass, revealed his latest piece on Sunday in the Swiss Alps; a coronavirus-related artwork of a girl looking towards the horizon, as reported by Channel News Asia.
Saype, whose real name is Guillaume Legros painted his temporary, biodegradable images on lawns from Yamoussoukro in Ivory Coast to the Champ de Mars next to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. His work often depicts children or a close-up of two people’s hands gripping each other’s forearms.
His new work, ‘Beyond Crisis’, which was painted on a clearing in the Swiss resort town of Lesyin, shows a girl sitting, completing a chain of stick figures holding hands.
“The fresco of more than 3,000 square metres evokes the building of a world with more solidarity and more humanity,” said Saype in a statement.
