Konstantin Dimopoulos’ The Blue Trees in Sydney #ArtTuesday
Find some time to take a stroll this week if you’re anywhere near Pirrama Park to check out this art! From Lost at E Minor:
If you notice the trees around Sydney have turned blue this week, don’t be alarmed. This is just a clever environmental art installation called The Blue Trees by Egyptian born, New Zealand-raised artist Konstantin Dimopoulos.
The installation, which will take place in Pirrama Park, Pyrmont, highlights global deforestation by painting trees bright blue, making us stop in our tracks to take notice.
