Message to artists, street art lovers and curious about discoveries! The most beautiful fresco of the year is in Finistère, in Brittany, and it has something to deceive us. And it is not for nothing that it is an impressive trompe-l’oeil.
Crossing the Breton town of Plougasnou, your gaze may be curiously drawn to a huge “first aid kit” hanging on the facade of a seaside house. It is a toy pack with 4 boats. But what are those ships doing there? In reality, your brain is playing tricks on you, as it is a beautiful trompe-l’oeil created by the Dutch artist Léon Keer.
Dating from June 2021, this work is an ode to the men and women who save lives at sea, such as the street artist on FranceInfo † “I’ve featured the heroes who save the seas […] Because when I was a kid, I always admired people who do their best to help those in need without hesitation. †
Here are the stages of the realization of this beautiful fresco, both colorful and childish:
This trompe-l’oeil baptized first aid kit has just won first place in the Golden Street Art 2021. A prestigious title that has earned it as the most beautiful fresco of the year in France. Also on stage is a pensive old fisherman, made by the Rennes artist Aéro, in Calais, or the Marianne by the painter Snake, in La Seyne-sur-mer.
A wonderful work to think about for free and without measure…
