"THE PAINTED FOREST AND THE OMA VALLEY"

Discover a magical landscape!

The Forest of Oma, one of basque artist Agustin Ibarrola´s best known works, is an exaple of "Land Art" , a creative trend that first appeared in the 1960s and wich 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 arround the Forest, figures appears and changes 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.
