Painted Pigeons In Venice

You would probably rub your eyes once or twice if you saw a bright pink or green pigeon whizzing by – but if this happens while you’re in Venice, Italy, stay cool: it’s fine, it’s art.

In order to change the perception of pigeons being ‘the rats of the sky’, Berlin-based artists Julian Charriere and Julius von Bismarck decided to paint the feathered fellas in various vivid colors. Without harming the pigeons, the artist duo spray-painted them with a specially created booth hoping that the hostility would be replaced by camera shutter clicks.

It was a part of the art project called “Some pigeons are more equal than others” during the 2012 Venice Biennale, so some of the colored pigeons might still be lingering around there.
