This Wall Art Is Made From Steel And Plants
American sculptor Frank Plant, has recently completed Grow, a large steel and plant based drawing for Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
After photographing a group of students from the university to use as a starting point, the artist created the piece using steel covered in green flocking and plants on nine of the fourteen heads.
The use of green flock creates a mossy texture and the use of live plants gives the piece a more natural look that’s in keeping with the school’s agricultural and earth science focus.
The materials used and the title of the piece also represent both the individual and collective growth that happens at university.
