According to Sacramento’s Facebook feed, Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos (obviously descended from Scottish prison convicts, you can tell by the name) will be painting a block of Sacramento sycamores blue tomorrow. Look for the trees on 13th between J & K.
When asked why painting trees is his thing, Dimopoulos said, “Trees are largely invisible in our daily lives, and itâ€™s not until itâ€™s too late that we realise how important they are to us both aesthetically and environmentally…Through colour I am making a personal statement about the spirituality of trees and their importance to our very survival: trees are the lungs of the planet.”
I was going to get all snarky on that, but I have to admit I think it’s a great, fun idea. Good on ya, mate.
