ART on a tree !!

By Chinga
ART on a tree !! Artistic projects in Portugal to keep the care home residents occupied... It's an alternative Urban Art to keep people interested in a great creative activity... Some of the work is first-class in my view. (Photos from Silves) Algarve. Hope you like it.

Wonderful to see, Isabel, what a great idea. Sounds a good place to be. From the thumbnail I thought it was a person standing on their head, legs in the air 😀 What a good art form around the trees.

Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk. It is also called wool bombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting, or graffiti knitting.

p.s. all excellent, Isabel, a few years ago many trees in Moscow parks were yarn-bombed

Some real fancy knitting and crochet work here, Isabel. A good idea and something to distract, from what is going on just now. Plus it keeps the trees warm??

Is this a Portuguese tradition, Isabel? I have never see crochet or knitting around tree trunks and branches before...a wonderful set.

Just wonderful Isabel, loving V10.

I came across - and photographed - knitted work like this back in April 2015 whilst on a day out to York, and it was in the Museum Gardens. There was just the one tree decorated with knitwear, with various objects adorning it, from flags to flowers, animals and birds 😃 Another super collection put together again here, Isabel, think my fave has to be the snake in V10! 👍

Such fun, and really well done all the knitters. I wonder how long they last before they get weathered and tatty. Never mind, always time for more knitting. Smile

Wonderful set Isabel love the snake on the last version. I wish this would be done to the man made lamp posts and not trees. I do not like to see this I like naked trees! Debs
