Where most pedestrians would see just a plain tree hole, Chinese artist Wang Yue sees a canvas.

In Shijiazhuang, China, Yue has transformed tree holes on Jiuzhong Street into vibrant pieces of art that have added vibrancy and color to the urban area. Shijiazhuang is one of the most densely populated areas in China, with a population of over 10 million. The artwork has earned kudos from passersby and Chinese media that praise Yue's efforts to turn the few trees in the area into canvases. Her tree hole art will eventually wash away with time thanks to the environmentally friendly paints that Yue uses.

Most of Yue's art depicts cute animals poking out from the tree holes such as raccoons, kittens and squirrels, but also include surprisingly detailed landscapes and nature depictions. Stats for Urban Tree Hole Art Trending: Older & Average
