This incredible art installation called ‘Blue Trees’ by Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos is, you’ll agree, very striking. And no they aren’t manipulated photographs, he did actually paint them. But, before you say anything, he does use environmentally safe pigments to paint the trunks and limbs of the trees concerned. He concentrates his work in urban areas to help raise awareness of worldwide deforestation - nearly 32 million acres of forests every year. He says about the work:
Through my work I am striving to address global issues and provide a visual platform to effect change. So many universal concerns seem larger than an individual’s power of influence and I want to evoke in people the idea that we can all contribute to change in a positive way.
Dimopoulos has painted trees in Melbourne, Vancouver and the USA
