To celebrate International Recycling Day, the city of Buenos Aires asked the French street artist, known as Saype, to make a memorable installation in the capital of Argentina.
Saype is known for his immense paintings for which he uses natural and biodegradable colors. As such, he was more than happy to embrace the challenge and create a beautiful artwork that also shares a powerful message.
Located on General San Martin Square, the huge painting depicts a little girl happily scribbling about. Painted on an area of over 5,200 square meters, the artwork can be seen from above which makes for a dramatic effect.
The painting clearly highlights the technical skills of Saype who brought the child to life. In contrast, the strong white lines from the child’s drawings convey an important message about today’s youth and the fate of our planet.
