“Beyond Walls” by Saype in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – StreetArtNews


For the fifteenth phase of the international artwork “Beyond Walls” in Rio de Janeiro, Saype strives to bridge the impassable length involving Benin (tenth phase of the undertaking) and Brazil. Therefore allowing for those who still left throughout the ocean never ever to return, to feel once again the desperate embrace of those who saw them drift away forever… from African origin to American vacation spot, from gentle to night, from liberty to slavery.

The large eco liable landart paintings by Saype were being developed on the Estàcio favela (825m2) and Copacabana seaside (1.500m2). These two artworks ended up developed making use of natural pigments made out of charcoal and chalk. “Beyond Walls”  global project aims to inbound links much more than 30 towns around the entire world to market the message of togetherness. 

Further than partitions erected by people between people, Saype went to satisfy the neighborhood communities in the Estacìo favela.

Among the postcard image of Copacabana, which nevertheless bears the tragic marks of history, and the favela, the gigantic palms of “Beyond Walls” try to defeat the fractures of the previous as perfectly as all those that are even now really existing. They remind us that it is only via cooperation that partitions drop down and that the universal becomes a reality: “the universal is the neighborhood minus the walls” (Miguel Torga).

In an increasingly polarised environment, the artist chooses to paint symbolically the premier human chain in the world, inviting us to embrace kindness and togetherness, this is the “Beyond Walls” task. Pairs of hands, which intertwine and vacation from city to town, and sort a big chain painted on the floor symbolising union, mutual aid, and common effort outside of partitions.
