Artist Guillaume Legros (more commonly known as SAYPE), has garnered international acclaim for his massive artworks found at the intersection of land art and street art.

Using 100% biodegradable spray paint derived from natural pigments like coal and chalk, Saype’s giant frescos ‘fade to the rhythm of the regrowth of grass before disappearing completely and naturally.’

The ephemeral works are captured in photographic form before disappearing forever, and he has been invited by tourism and cultural boards around the globe to create his works. Previous projects include colossal pieces in Berlin, Geneva, Andorra, and even at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Saype’s latest work, entitled BEYOND CRISIS, was created atop a hillside near the resort town of Leysin, in western Switzerland and measures over 3000 m2 (32,200 sq ft).
