Soaring Murals of Plants on Urban Walls by Mona Caron

0

The muralist Mona Caron has continued her series Weeds all over the world, with colorful depictions of humble plants growing taller and taller in buildings from Portland and São Paulo to Spain and Taiwan. The San Francisco-based artist is often associated with local and international social and environmental movements for climate justice, labor rights and water rights, and selects plants, both native and invasive, found in the cities where she paints. Caron also integrates small details into the main visual elements of his murals:

Several of these murals contain intricate miniature details, invisible from afar. These normally narrate local history, relate the social life of the immediate environment of the mural and visualize future possibilities, and are created in a process that incorporates ideas that arise through spontaneous conversations with the host communities of the work of art when painting .

Caron regularly shares process videos and photos of completed work on Instagram, and delves into the narratives behind several of his murals on his website.
