The idea of painting trees a very unnatural color in order to raise awareness about nature itself seems, well...absurd. But Australia-based artist Konstantin Dimopoulos is doing just that.

Konstantin has this to say of his creation:

In nature color is used both as a defensive mechanism, a means of protection, and as a mechanism to attract. The Blue Trees attempts to waken a similar response from viewers. 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.

His work can be found in Vancouver, Seattle, and New Zealand.
