Biography

Biography

In each of his works, Saype captures the fragility of our societies and the challenges we are all called to face, immortalizing on paper the ephemeral nature of the monumental frescoes he creates on grass, earth, sand, and snow across the world: New York, Paris, Venice, Geneva, Cape Town, Turin, Dubai, Nairobi, Istanbul, Ouagadougou, Miami, Tokyo...

The passage of his frescoes, intended to fade away, aims to impact mindsets while respecting the natural world. They are made with an eco-conscious paint composed primarily of chalk and charcoal.

Among his most notable works is the series Beyond Walls. This monumental project stemmed from an assumption: the world is polarized, a portion of the population chooses to withdraw. Yet, Saype emphasizes, "I am deeply convinced that it is together that humanity will be able to face the various challenges it must overcome."

From this conviction, the desire to share a positive message of mutual support and joint effort worldwide was born, symbolically creating the largest human chain ever made.
