Making of The Birds (video)

THE BIRDS were inspired by Fereniki Tsamparli and implemented by IDEA team during THE ISLAND OF LOVE festival in Lesvos Island, Greece, on February 2017.

14 bird sculptures were designed and made with recycled materials (mostly plastic parts of lifejackets found at Lesvos’ shores during the refugee crisis and paper pulp) by IDEA’s creative team.

During the festival 14 artists came to Lesvos and used the sculptures as a blank canvas to create their exceptional artwork! A 15th artwork titled “Love is Multicolored” was created by Greek students, students of Mytilene’s special school and refugee children.
