The forest of OMA

Discover a magical landscape - The Painted Forest ant the OMA Valley

The forest of Oma, one of Basque artist Agustín Ibarrola?s best known works, is an example of ?land art?, a creative trend that first appeared in the 1960s and which seeks to take art to nature and use the countryside as the artist?s frame, support and medium.

Figures that appear and transform as you move

Walking around the Forest, figures appear and change as you look: although sometimes the painting on a single tree is complete in itself, in other cases you need to observe a set of several trees to see the work whole. Moreover, your perception of the figures varies depending on the point you look from: the figures change and transform as you move. So really you could call this a customized visit, because the artist makes each visitor the protagonist of his work.
