Blue Trees

“These bizarre blue trees were painted  by Konstantin Dimopoulos (…) using an environmentally-safe water-based pigment as part of an art installation in Canada.” (source: Inhabitat)

“The Blue Trees is a social art action.  Through colour 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.(…)

The fact that blue is a colour that is not naturally identified with trees suggests to the viewer that something unusual, something out of the ordinary has happened. It becomes a magical transformation.(…)

Trees are largely invisible in our daily lives, and it’s not until it’s too late that we realise how important they are to us both aesthetically and environmentally.(…)” (source: Konstantin Dimopoulos)
