Painting the Town Blue

Internationally-acclaimed conceptual artist Konstantin Dimopoulos creates his latest public art project, "Blue Trees"

By Michael Hardy March 22, 2013

Artist Konstantin Dimopoulos has radically transformed two groves of trees near Buffalo Bayou park for a public art project sponsored by the Houston Arts Alliance. On Friday and Saturday, volunteers helped Dimopoulos coat the tree trunks with ultramarine blue pigment, which Dimopoulos says is non-toxic and should wash away naturally in 6-7 months.
