This street artist has found a whole new canvas for her work - and it's all natural.

Wang Yue, a 23-year-old art student who lives in Shijiazhuang, China, has created a series of artworks in the hollows of trees.

Her subjects are from the natural world, and she decorates the trees with pictures of landscapes and animals.

Those unsullied images of nature are an especially welcome sight in Shijiazhuang, which is known for its terrible pollution.

Although the finished product is pretty organic, there's a digital component to her work: once she's located the perfect tree, she designs her paintings in the computer, fitting them precisely into the hollow she's located.

Then, she heads back out to the tree and transfers the imagery using paint and brushes.

And just in case you're worried about the health of the trees, the local Environmental Protection Agency has looked into her art and declared that it's safe and harmless.

You can see more of Wang Yue's artwork on her website.
