Weeds: Mona Caron

“A tribute to the resilience of all those beings who no one made room for, were not part of the plan, and yet keep coming back, pushing through and rising up.”

That was the inspiration behind Swiss artist Mona Caron’s ongoing weeds project. She looks for weeds in the city streets near a wall that she’s about to paint. When she finds a particularly heroic one who found the most unlikely little spot to grow through, she paints it large-scale!

Check out her website for some amazing animations of her weeds ‘growing’.
