Painter Turns Tree Holes into Works of Art

 

In the city of Shijiazhuang, China, an artist has brought smiles to pedestrians by painting drab tree holes and turning them into works of art. Since February, over eleven tree trunks on Jiuzhong Street have become the canvas for aspiring 23 year-old art student, Wang Yue.

Each piece takes Wang about two hours to complete. The local environmental protection bureau has approved the artworks and publicly stated that the paints used will not harm the tree and will eventually wash away over time.

Wang Yue’s artwork has received much praise in the Chinese media. The splash of colour has been welcomed by the citizens of Shijiazhuang, a city of over ten million people, known for having some of the worst air pollution in the world.
