Mihai Topescu and a team of volunteers are covering the Dumbrava Forest in all the colors of the rainbow.

Hundreds of trees in the Dumbrava Forest of Gorj County, a mountainous region in Southwest Romania, have been painted all the colors of the rainbow to protest the illegal logging activity that’s run rampant in the area for years. According to local news outlet Mediafax, a team of activists and volunteers, led by Romanian visual artist Mihai Topescu, spent the days between June 30th and July 3rd covering over 600 trees in eco-friendly paint for what they are calling Art Land “Gradina Paradisului” (“The Garden of Paradise”).

According to Romania Insider, Topescu hopes to create a space that encourages meditation, reflection, and self discovery. The artist described the piece as “some kind of manifesto against everything that happens with deforestation, an artistic manifesto.”
