Beyond the Monstera

Technical botanical language. Visual grammar research guided by the Monstera deliciosa.


Silkscreen project for  One Window # 1 initiated by New Window.
Throughout the process I looked for a way to make an abstraction of the plant, in order to make a lively print. The process of developing ‘Beyond the Monstera’, from the first moment of inspiration until the final outcome, is shown online here.
