Just Grow It!

French artist Christophe Guinet was born in Paris and grew up between town and country, always keeping in touch with nature. His craft allowed him to realise what kind of world we are living in: worried by industrialisation, manipulation and how human thought was changing, he becomes more careful when collecting raw natural materials. Contemplative and passionate aesthete of the plant world, he uses his findings related to places and seasons, to create works of art with care and a concentration close to the meditative state. The artistic process is thus an integral part of the final work of art.

As ephemeral and fragile as a bouquet of flowers, Christophe’s compositions show us the beauty of nature through everyday and cult objects. His care to minimise the harmful impact on the environment is in contrast to the escalation of consumerism and the race to keep producing objects which are ever newer, more technical, more ‘hype.’

The following is his project "Just Grow It!". For more information aboutthis and other projects of Christophe Guinet's artwork, please visit his website.
