Mysterious painted trees mystery solved (10 HQ photos)

Hikers in Colorado have been noticing an odd natural phenomenon lately -beautifully painted dead trees. The artist behind this natural "street art" is Curtis Killorn. He calls it public art and is being commissioned to paint trees all over Colorado. If you have a dead tree that needs spruced up, contact Curtis HERE

    As long as this doesn't get out of control and the paint is bio degradable I don't see the problem. They look cool but I wouldn't commission him to do this all over. 2or 3 I get it. a forest chop hit fucking hands off.

    His work doesn't seem very original to me. The color schemes he uses are a direct ripoff of a glass media artist named Dale Chihuly.

    The description called it "natural". Think before you type

    These are very beautiful in my opinion, I really like #8.
    I wouldn't necessarily want these in all landscapes, but it's a nice thing here and there.

    Wow. Stunning colours against the dessert! I love it.

    Actually, this isn't that unusual.

    On a few large properties in Australia we paint a tree yellow to signify a few things; if it has emergency supplies buried under it, if that way leads to a shelter or to mark a creek.
    My grandfather had a yellow tree that showed riders where the start of the trail was that lead back to the house.

    The trees were cut down about a year ago. I ride my bike past the stumps several days a week. I am not sure who cut them down.
