The leaves are starting to change color and fall to the ground, the air turn cold and chilling. Let’s kick off this beautiful time of year with some heartwarming art. This story took place two years ago, but it is no less impactful. Using paint, Wang Yue transformed tree holes into works of art. She wanted to bring some cheer and beauty to Shijiazhuang; at the time, the city had one of the worst cases of air pollution in the world. For those of you worrying about the trees, fear not! The paint was deemed safe by the local environment authorities (Pinar). Wang Yue calls her tree hole paintings “Meitu” which means “Beautiful Journey (Chen).”
