French artist Saype creates a natural sand mural in the desery of Oman

French-Swiss artist Saype realized a giant landart painting on March 11th, 2023 at the Ibri solar farm, Ibri 2 IPP Project, in Oman. With an overall area of 11’250 square meters, this artwork was created using biodegradable pigments made out of charcoal & chalk. This work questions us about our relationship to energy, and the new solutions to get out of fossil fuels.

Oman is increasingly becoming a key player in the global push towards renewable energy, leveraging its vast desert landscapes to harness solar power. Look to the Ibri Solar Project, a 500 MW capacity plant that underscores the nation’s commitment to diversifying its energy sources and reducing its carbon footprint and diversifying away from oil.

Highlighting this beautiful scene is the French-Swiss artist Saype who laid out a mural of hope in the sands of the Wahiba Desert.

The Ibri Solar Project, located in Al Dhahirah Governorate, is a cornerstone of Oman’s renewable energy strategy. Operational since early 2021, it represents a significant leap in the nation’s quest to derive 30% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

The plant, covering an area of 1,300 hectares, features over 1.4 million solar panels and is expected to produce approximately 1,500 GWh of clean electricity annually. This is sufficient to power around 50,000 homes and reduce CO2 emissions by about 340,000 tons per year, equivalent to taking nearly 70,000 cars off the road

The project is a collaboration between the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) and a consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s fossil fuel company ACWA Power, which includes Gulf Investment Corporation and Alternative Energy Projects Company.

Saype’s mural spanned over 5,000 square meters of the desert, depicting a pair of hands holding a seedling. This artwork, part of his worldwide “Beyond Walls” project, aims to connect communities across borders through a shared commitment to environmental stewardship and social unity. Let’s hope the same can happen between Gaza and Israel.
