Blue surreal trees in Seattle

Two projects in Seattle one at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle and the other located along the Burke Gilman Trail will feature blue smurf colored trees.

The trees are painted with biologically safe pigmented water color by Australian artist Konstantin Dimopolous. The blue vibrant blue trees are painted to help draw attention deforestation issues around the world.

The trees, once painted will slowly fade and will lose most of their by summer, until then, the blue trees are turning heads.

The art project is sponsored by Seattle’s 4 Culture organizations which hopes will inspire discussion around the deforestation issues.  

However, one man plans on helping several trees turn heads.

About 32 million acres of forests were converted to other uses or lost to natural causes each year between 2000 and 2010, according to a 2010 report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Adrian, Whatever it takes to get people's attention ... and bring attention to the issues and concerns!  I hope the blue trees work!

A fabulous idea... Adrian.  And certainly a head turner for sure... I hope it brings awareness to the cause ;)

I think being in two popular locations it can help but raise awareness to the cause.

Hi Mel. Indeed, It certainly got my attention as I was driving down the street at 45 mph, I had to find out what this amazing site was all about. Not your everyday happening.

That is really cool.  Thanks for the picture.  They would have been hard to imagine.  There will be a lot of turning heads around there!

Very visually stunning and I love that the message is conveyed in a way that does not harm the trees. The picture is surreal.
