In fact, during the festival “Just Do Paint” in Saint-Brieuc, his mural was representing a woman holding the Earth’s heart. Hidden and colourful letters are forming words, that are written on the woman’s body. Snake calls this approach “typocaractère” (typography + character). The Words that he pick are often in relation to his theme: Action, Choix (=choice), Espoir (=hope), Urgence (=urgency) et Temps (=time). All of this forms a beautiful piece of art that citizen from Saint-Brieuc can observe for free.
