There is something innately captivating about dead trees, and it is this default integrity that is the inspiration behind Curtis Killorn's fantastic artwork.

Using incredibly vibrant paint, Curtis Killorn turns deceased plant life into spectacular public art pieces which stand out vividly against their stark natural backgrounds. So far, his work has been limited to the mountains of Colorado, but it is undoubtedly a format of expression that could hopefully catch on around the world.

Implications - Some may believe that the use of paints may mask the natural beauty of the trees, but that's not Killorn's intention at all. Instead, the artist hopes that the bold colors will bring out and accentuate the beauty that's already there.
