As a not so big fan of pigeons, Berlin-based artists Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charriere did a rather cool experiment with these ratty birds. The duo dyed the local pigeons of Venice coinciding with this years Venice Biennale, . The idea was to change the perception of pigeons in the city to be something beautiful rather than rats of the sky. The end result are pigeons that resemble jewel toned parrots you’d find in the wilds of the jungle, defying the dirty, pretzel-pecking image that usually comes to mind.
The birds were spray painted with a non-harmful dye in a specially created booth, for those wondering.
