High Up and Beyond the Crisis

Last week,the renowned French street artist Guillaume Legros (aka Saype) created an enormous and emotionally moving work in the Swiss alps above the town of Leysin. Using his innovative technique that is based on spraying naturally derived , biodegradable pigments, he has produced a large landart mural directly on the mountainside.

Legros describes the work as: “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.”
