Decorated Gas Tanks in Japan

Decorated Gas Tanks in Japan

Decorated gas tanks in Japan you say? Yes, and I love how it’s totally random over there! Big smiley faces, butterflies, hearts, flowers…you name it!

The decorated gas tanks can be found all over Japan, and the decoration is done by local gas companies, just to brighten things up, because there is nothing more boring than a gray gas tank, right? The tanks are enormous so you can spot them from far away, and I bet they look like colorful golf balls from above. One interesting thing is that the decorators have some sense for colorful and almost feminine design, which is by the way common in Japanese pop culture. Speaking of decorating the outdoor environment, a talented artist has painted withered trees in Colorado desert in crazy psychedelic colors to make them appear alive.
