Coffee and charcoal for a mural


Sébastien Pridmore, who uses only natural pigments for his works, was inspired by a photo showing a scene from the life of a working-class neighborhood in 1900.

At the bend of an alleyway in the City, in the historic heart of Lausanne, the walker now discovers a mural on the life of the 1900s, signed Sébastien Pridmore.

The Vaud artist no longer uses industrial colors. He himself creates his own paintings, with natural pigments such as saffron, beet, turmeric or even coffee. For the Lapin-Vert lane, he used coffee and charcoal to obtain a sepia tint reminiscent of the images of yesteryear.

The artist was inspired by a photo showing a scene from the life of a working-class neighborhood in 1900. We see children and women in period clothing, a dog and a butcher. Resin and varnish were added to allow the fresco to last, said a press release on Tuesday.
