Question 3: Who painted this giant fresco?
- Shepard Fairey
Correct Answer: Saype
Fact: The French-Swiss artist—real name Guillaume Legros—is known for his grassy graffiti around the world. This 27,000-square-foot fresco at Istanbul's Boğaziçi University was part of Saype's Beyond Walls project, and created in 2020. The artist uses biodegradable paints made from natural pigments such as coal and chalk, so Saype's land art eventually disappears into the soil.
