Although street art can be found in virtually any cityscape these days, Russian artist Eugenia Dudnikova is taking her art back to nature. The artist paints beautifully intricate artwork on the small bark-less spaces found in tree trunks. Her tiny, surrealistic images were inspired by children’s book illustrations.
The specific location of the artist’s work is unknown, but its clear that Dudnikova uses the serenity of nature as inspiration. Using acrylic paints, she turns bark-free spaces into tiny works of tree art hidden deep inside the forest.
The images include depictions of animals, people, and landscapes, all painted in muted pastel tones that, along with the serene surroundings, give a melancholy feel to the artwork. Although the exact location of Dudnikova’s work is undisclosed, more images of her work can be found on Behance.
