The World’s First Street Art Installation In The Amazon Rainforest

When you cut down a tree, it’s like putting a man down.

French activist artist Philippe Echaroux has illuminated the Amazon rainforest with light projections onto the trees, creating the world’s first street art installation in the Amazon. The installation is a call for environmental action, created for his conservation project Street Art 2.0 to highlight the deforestation of the Brazilian rainforest which is home to the Surui people, where they are forced to leave their land. By projecting the faces of elders from the Surui tribe onto the trees, Echaroux wants to deliver a powerful message: “When you cut down a tree, it’s like putting a man down.”
