Mona Caron is an artist from San Francisco who strives to highlight the beauty of rare plants through breathtaking mural art. Recently, she finished painting a massive flower mural at San Jose’s convention center. Beautiful pastel colors are blended together in this attractive mural, and it spans across five surfaces. This stunning mural is titled “Limonium”, which is a species of California marsh rosemary. Even when you observe it from different angles, it looks like a single continuous flower. To achieve this, Caron had to superimpose an image of the reference plant onto the building with multiple planes. After that, she marked calculated reference points to aid her drawing.
This mesmerizing artwork is a part of “Weeds”, Caron’s ongoing series influenced by plants. Through these, Caron hopes to highlight the beauty of nature in difficult times. Caron’s biggest source of inspiration for her striking artworks is the “spontaneous urban vegetation” which grows near the sight of the painting. In the murals, she presents a magnified version of the plant. This way, the plant gets appreciated more.
