To the Moon by Saype

An amazing artwork by one of Europe’s most exciting artists appeared in New Brighton just in time for the OVO Energy Tour of Britain. To the Moon, by Saype, depicted a child piloting a toy plane in space. The artwork covered over 5,000sqm, the size of a football pitch.

Switzerland-based Saype and his team took five days to create the image - using chalk and charcoal – on a massive scale. He specialises in large images which can be seen from above, including a recent work on the Champs de Mars by the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
