Saype takes out the Trash, Lake Geneva Lausanne 2023

French-Swiss artist Saype has just finished a giant eco-responsible landart painting next to the beautiful Lake Geneva in Lausanne.

What a pleasure it is to come and paint in such a beautiful place that holds so much meaning for me!


This artwork was created using natural pigments made of charcoal and chalk and consists of a giant empty plastic drinks bottle crumpled up and chucked onto the grass. The black lid falls on the opposite side of the pavement.

This artwork represents trash and aims to question us about our behaviours, but also on the issue of water protection.

The beautiful scenery surrounding Lake Geneva is tainted by the giant ‘Trash’ landart Saype has just finished painting.
