Painted Pigeons

Italy paints pigeons to make them more beautiful for tourists for a project called “Some pigeons are more equal than others,” artists Julius von Bismarck and Julian Charriere spraypainted a handful of Venice’s pigeons and rereleased them in time for 2012 Venice Biennale. The German duo dyed the birds in the radiant colors of Macaws, Flamingos and Cardinals, with the hope that tourists would notice their beauty, and stop referring to them as “rats of the sky”.
