The Unusual and Poetic Tree Trunks of The Artist Monsieur Plant
Nature and its specificity never fail to surprise us and this feeling is confirmed by observing the unusual and vegetal works of the artist Christophe Guinet, better known under the pseudonym of Monsieur Plant.
Born in Paris, he grew up between the city and the countryside and forged a certain closeness with nature. As a teenager, he was also interested in urban culture, including street art, without forgetting his first passion for flora to the point of making it the central subject of his art.
It is especially in the middle of nature and whatever the season, that he unearths tree stumps and trunks which he will then transform into real works of art. Through his artistic compositions, he wants to express strong feelings but also to denounce the excesses of our modern society such as the race for innovation or over-consumption.
His latest project, called TWIST, aims to highlight the fantastic and unexpected universe that nature can offer. It is made up of 5 tree trunks with assuredly surprising and realistic shapes that wonderfully illustrate the treasures of nature. To find out more about the artist, you can visit his website and his Instagram account.
