Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos uses environmentally safe pigments to paint the trunks and limbs of trees in urban areas. Through his art installation, he is raising awareness of the nearly 32 million acres of forests lost each year around the world. He says, “The Blue Trees is a social art action. Through color I am making a personal statement about the spirituality of trees and their importance to our very survival: trees are the lungs of the planet.”
He has painted trees in Melbourne – Australia, Vancouver – Canada, Virginia, Seattle, California and other cities in USA.
