Sculptural artist Spencer Byles spent a year creating beautiful sculptures out of natural and found materials throughout the unmanaged forests of La Colle Sur Loup (where he lived with his family), Villeneuve Loubet and Mougins. He worked together with elements of his natural surroundings to create artwork that blends seamlessly with the environment.
These look like so much fun!

I worked at an art museum that featured Patrick Dougherty and he spent a couple months there building one of his stickworks that wrapped around the staircase, along with some other installations. He's really fascinating to talk with, and it was just amazing to see him work.
I really love the spirals in the first post. Would love to do that in our woods, but I have very little artistic vision. Envious of people that do.
"Oma forest (in Basque: Omako basoa) is a work of art created by Agustin Ibarrola, a Basque sculptor and painter. The work is located in a forest near Kortezubi (Bizkaia, Basque Country), in the natural reserve of Urdaibai. It is also known as the 'painted forest'. The work follows the modern art trend called Land art. Most of the trees are Monterrey pines. The projects aims to display the horrible and ghastly harmony between nature and human presence by painting on the trunks of trees, human figures, animals and geometric shapes, some of which are visible only from certain positions." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oma_forest IMAGES:
