Murals of Plants | Mona Caron

A series of paintings of urban weeds by San Francisco-based artist Mona Caron. Her focus is on community-informed and site-specific murals in public space. She has created large-scale murals in the US, Europe, South America and Asia, has delved into stop-motion animation as part of her “WEEDS” project.
In her own words:

I paint all kinds of spontaneous urban vegetation: both invasive and endemic species. Both get eradicated as weeds when they get caught trespassing our enclosures. Yet they come back, always at the front lines, carving a path for the rest of nature to follow.
Weeds break through even the hardest cement, the most seemingly invincible constraints, reconnecting earth to sky, like life to its dreams. It’s happening everywhere at the margins of things, we’re just not paying attention
