Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos has been busy painting environmentally safe paint to the trunks and limbs of trees in urban areas to help raise awareness of the nearly 32 million acres of forests lost each year around the world.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 says Dimopoulos. Trees are largely invisible in our daily lives, and it’s not until it’s too late that we realize how important they are to us both aesthetically and environmentally. Her stunning installations are touring around the globe providing a visual platform for her cause.
