Thought the umbrellas was an unusual art display, but loved them. The ones turned into lights were beautiful.

there's a group of local NW artists who did an umbrella installation at a few different events called "umbrella favella" with dynamic multicolored lights. here's a photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nomadicentrepreneur/2563236489/

I..never thought umbrellas could be used for anything besides getting away from the rain..now I know differently ! Strange but amazing art. Photos do them justice

THE INSTALLATION OF UMBRELLAS IS AN ART AND THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR.

Wow....I Love all kinds of art....this is absolutely beautiful.The colors of the umbrellas were so vividly displayed,they were very eyecatching.I'm not an artist but I do respect the artist....There is real talent here.

Dima said...

Nice... Cool find! Are all of these real or some just photoshopped? The last one on with yellow umbrellas on a hill by a highway seems unreal for example...

didgeblower said...

How fantastic! Creative artists can see beauty in anything and produce amazing things that stir the emotions of one kind or another (or all of them together!)

Venus said...

@ Dima, we are sure none of these are shopped!

candyspender said...

@everyone, if you were an umbrella, what color would you be?

Bronson Harrington said...

The Umbrella art installation at Island Six Studios reminds me of the dome formation near the end of the 300 movie.

I have never such a creative work from common things. It is really great and it also proves that for making a beautiful art work, it is not necessary to use expensive things only.

Ron said...

Least expected that plain umbrellas can turn into spectacular designs! Brilliant!

I saw the umbrella installation in Thessaloniki, Greece this past summer when I traveled for 9 months through Europe on my bicycle. It was great to see it on your list. very cool!

Venus said...

@ Darren, it must have been great to see it in actual.

Delores Malcomson said...

These are fantastic installations, so imaginative and creative. I, especially, liked the "Paper Umbrellas" and "The Art House at Night", they remind me of Dale Chihuly Glass works.

There was a very interesting umbrella installation at the channel 4 building in London. Just like the i dents it was only viewable from one perspective.Ive put a link for an image, but it is nowhere near as good as the real deal.

"Umbrella Art Installation in Greece:"

if you want to be more specific the installation is in Thessaloniki, and the artist was called Yorgos Zoggolopoulos. He represented Greece in the Venice Biennale 1993 with his project "Umbrellas"
