OMA FOREST, SPAIN
Oh I’m so in love with this! I saw the first pic of this amazing piece of art somewhere on pinterest ages ago and stumbled upon it again today. And I thought I really have to share this with you! The beautiful Oma forest is a work of art created by Agustin Ibarrola, a Basque sculptor and painter. The work is located in the north of Spain, in a forest near Kortezubi (Bizkaia, Basque Country), in the natural reserve of Urdaibai. And also known as the “painted forest”.
The work follows the modern art trend called “Land art”. Most of the trees are Monterrey pines. Displays the horrible and ghastly harmony between nature and human presence by painting on the trunks of trees, human figures, animals and geometric shapes, some of which are visible only from certain positions.
