The lighthouse in saint-tropez, france, has been transformed with a vibrant display of corals created by french artist miguel chevalierthe public artwork is called ‘coraux fractals 1’ and it marks the fourth edition of saint-tropez couleur bleu, an event initiated by agnès bouquet that merges culture, heritage and environment. chevalier’s design is composed of printed and hand-painted corals that are brought to life with fluorescent colors in a bid to highlight fragile ocean ecosystems.

The ‘corauxllages’ exhibition is open until august 29, 2021

The artistic installation takes the form of a canvas that wraps the lighthouse and transforms it into a ‘manifeste de couleur’ (color manifesto). to create the large scale piece, chevalier revisits the shape of coral through a digital prism. set against a deep blue background, massive branches of corals overlap to evoke an underwater reef.

Check out the color usage by this artist. And, there is a digital work within the video of the lighthouse that is captivating. I can’t get over the palette that Claude Mossessian uses.
