Weed Murals That Slowly Engulf Urban Buildings by Mona Caron

Mona Caron began her project by painting weeds onto the sides of buildings and has now began to film the process step by step and create short animations that make the weeds appear as if they are growing up the side of buildings.

Caron's art turns grey buildings and walls in public spaces into colourful murals and has recently painted in India, her native country of Switzerland and San Francisco which is where she currently lives. Her weed murals depict how nature often triumphs in the most unlikely of circumstances as she puts it herself.

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.
