Why Trees?

The roots of #treetoo

  • Trees have inspired artists, writers and activists around the globe and through time, regardless their religious or ideological convictions.
  • The tree of life is a widespread myth or archetype in the world's mythologies, related to the concept of sacred tree more generally and hence in religious and philosophical tradition. [Wikipedia]
  • The tree of knowledge, connecting to heaven and the underworld, and the tree of life, connecting all forms of creation, are both forms of the world tree or cosmic tree, and are portrayed in various religions and philosophies as the same tree.

With this manifesto, we aim to raise awareness, to motivate and to animate the global Art Community , thus encouraging them to become active in the protection of our trees ~ nature & preservation of our planet.

Today, many protagonists of the art business are committed to environmental protection and to climate change. With its power of innovation, art becomes a weapon in the ultimate battle against environmental destruction of our planet.

Furthermore, the progressive art community act as the frontrunner ~ disruptor by adopting the symbol of a tree in their artwork.
