Swiss French artist Saype has just completed this wonderful new paint at the European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. The artwork covering 6000 square meters was produced with biodegradable paints made from natural pigments such as coal and chalk. Entitled “World in progress” this fresco symbolises the world of tomorrow seen by two children, and according to Saype:

b-sm = 300x250; sm > none;

“Their connection through this universal farandole should remind the present generations of their duty towards those to come. We can’t lose sight about the bright ideal of peace and mutual aid between nations, that should go hand in hand with the preservation of the world environmental heritage”.
