An artist known for creating huge pieces on grass has unveiled a project in the Swiss Alps inspired by the coronavirus crisis. Guillaume Legros, better known as French artist Saype, has painted images in cities across the world, including Paris, Buenos Aires and Liverpool. His latest work is entitled Beyond Crisis and shows a girl looking out towards the horizon with a chain of stick figures holding hands.
Beyond Crisis covers over 3,000 square metres. "The fresco of more than 3,000 square metres evokes the building of a world with more solidarity and more humanity," Saype said in a statement. The artwork was created on a clearing near the resort town of Leysin, in western Switzerland, using spray paint derived from coal and chalk.
