Rice Paddy Art

You might know that I love street art, the concept of sanctioned or unsanctioned beautification and interventions by individuals into public space.

A dialogue, or monologue splashed onto the greyness that dominates any and every city.

Shoes over telephone wires, wheatpaste art, stencils, graffiti, the 2000 piece puzzle of the Mona Lisa framed and hung on contruction boarding in a Mechelen sidestreet.

But it’s the theme of intervention into shared space, that I love. This art project in Inakadate, Aomori prefecture Japan is achieved by growing different varieties of rice in the same rice paddy. I can dig it.
