Italian artist Andreco has arguably created one of the first murals that helps fight air pollution. Andreco used a five-story apartment building as his canvas to paint a 59-foot mural that can reduce the amount of nitrogen monoxide in the air. He used a special photocatalytic paint that is able to clean the air of photochemicals such as smog.

The ‘Philosophical Tree’ mural can be seen in Bologna and demonstrates how nature can improve the air quality and contribute to a better urban environment.
