Saype is a young artist from Belfort, now working alongside the best international street artists, such as JR or Vils in a movement called LandArt, a contemporary art movement using natural settings and materials.
Internationally renowned, this artist paints oversize frescos of several hundred meters, directly on the grass, in the fields, or against the sides of mountains. And because he’s attached to philosophical and sociological matters and more precisely man’s position in society, his work lies within the scope of a humanist and ecological logic. Saype is making for the beginning of this summer a monumental fresco, in the center of Belfort, as a tribute to a city which has been welcoming each year, for 29 years now, visitors and artists of a major festival.
Lasting a month, this fleeting fresco is made out of biodegradable paint based on linseed oil, water and flour mixed with natural pigments to get a paint which makes up a very realistic XXL painting.
