Artist Lined Up 66,000 Water Cups In Perfect Formation For Beautiful Final Product.

Water artist

Serge Belo is a popular and insanely talented Canadian artist. In his latest installation, deemed “world’s largest water mosaic,” the artist utilizes 15,000 liters of water, 1 kilogram of vegetable dye, 100 volunteers, 62 hours of labor and 66,000 biodegradable cups. The final result is a mosaic masterpiece so beautiful it’s hard to believe!

The masterpiece– called 66,000: A Water Mosaic With a Cause— takes up 3,600 square feet. Belo was inspired after a drought in 2001 destroyed nearly all of the plants in the horticulture company he owned at the time. But the drought was about more than plants for Belo. Since that drought, he has been on a mission to raise awareness about access to clean water, and thought of 66,000: A Water Mosaic With A Cause as a way to repurpose a commonly used item– the drinking cup– to spark conversation.

The image at the end– a baby in the womb– is a symbol for life, a reminder that clean water is necessary to sustain life. The water used in Belo’s piece is all recycled rainwater.

Precision, foresight, organization, creativity – these are just a few of the qualities you must possess to create such a majestic work of art. Check out the video below to see just how compelling Belo’s art really is!
