This Graffiti Artist Makes The Most Incredible Birdhouses For City Birds

Graffiti artist Thomas Dambo loves birds. But in his native Denmark, cities don't typically have enough trees to house them.

Thus, one day, when Dambo found a bunch of free scrap wood, he decided to build the birds houses.

“I brought all the plywood home, thinking I could do some nice street art with it," he says. "And at some point, I came up with the idea to make birdhouses."

So for me making birdhouses was also a way of doing something everybody liked, something I could all day, where I don’t have to run from anybody.

“Like I said, I was doing a lot of street art and graffiti back then, and some of my friends had gotten in real trouble for painting the streets," he continues. "I really love graffiti and appreciate it, but many people don’t do the same, so as a graffiti painter, you often have to work at night running from the police.

“So for me making birdhouses was also a way of doing something everybody liked, something I could all day, where I don’t have to run from anybody. I think it’s because the birdhouse, unlike a lot of street art and graffiti, serves a purpose, the purpose of being a birdhouse.”
