“Happy City Birds” is an ongoing project running since 2006.
Happy City Birds sprung from Thomas being a former graffiti writer but was looking for a way to create street art in a positive way, that everyone will understand. Not everyone understands graffiti, but even Thomas’ grandmother understands the purpose of birdhouses.
All of the birdhouses are made from recycled materials and scrap wood. Most of the paint comes from Danish paint company Dyrup who donated a truckload of wrongfully toned paint to Thomas.
Since 2006 Thomas has made and installed more than 3500 birdhouses, in different shapes and colors, all over the world. Some he and his crew made themselves, while others were co-created in various workshops.
