A New Breath

I continue to be blown away by the magnificent “land art” created by French-Swiss innovator Guillaume Legros (aka Saype). His latest work, “Un Nouveau Souffle” (A New Breath) was completed above the village of Moleson-sur-Gruyeres, Switzerland, not far from Montreux last month.

Saype paints his enormous pieces using a mix of biodegradable pigments made out of charcoal, chalk, water, and whey. Over time they naturally disappear due to rain and snow. ” A New Breath”  whimsically shows a child blowing clouds toward the horizon. If you want to see it IRL, you’ll have to get there soon.
