The Blue Trees


The Blue Trees is an environmental art installation that draws attention to global deforestation by turning living, breathing trees bright blue, demanding we notice them before the planet’s old forests are gone for good.

Using a biologically safe water-based colourant, artist Konstantin Dimopoulos will transform living trees in Pirrama Park in scenic Pyrmont to create The Blue Trees in Sydney for the first time.

The Blue Trees briefly transforms a familiar urban landscape, the local park into a surreal, unfamiliar, and even uncomfortable reminder of human impact on the environment.

Konstantin Dimopoulos is an Egyptian born, New Zealand-raised, Melbourne-based artist who has created The Blue Trees in locations including outside St Paul’s Cathedral in London and around the USA. In 2015, The Blue Trees will feature at the Vancouver Biennale.

Of the project, he says:

“I have always known that art is and has always been an extended part of nature and that art can effect social change.
For that to happen, one has to move out of the art institutions and galleries and move outside among nature and people in their living spaces.”

The Blue Trees continues Art & About’s tradition of public artworks that are both eye-catching and thought provoking. When you share your selfie at The Blue Trees, why not share your thoughts on the environment, too? Hashtag #bluetrees

Contact artandabout@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au for information on how you can get involved.
