Nature is the key component for Paris-born artist Christophe Guinet, also known as “Mr. Plant”. As a teenager he was always very much in touch with nature, a fascination that he later combined with the urban street art inspired by skate and fashion.
Always eager to discover nature in a new composition, traveling has made him develop new perspectives for plants in different types of media via collage, photography, graphic design and sculpture.
The Plant Monsieur used Nike sneakers as a canvas to create handcrafted flower and tree bark sculptures. Through the sneakers his artistic aim is to express a critique of our consumer culture, an important perspective of going back to the source; nature and its purity.
