Joaquin Sevillano is an artist and landscape designer living in Toronto. A bricoleur at heart, his work weaves together visuals from fashion, feelings from music, ideas from art and hopes for the future in efforts to make the environments we live in more beautiful, spontaneous and intriguing.
Love Letters to Spontaneous Vegetation is a visual ode to the gardens that spring up all over our city in places where maintenance wanes and pavements crack. The striking compositions of spontaneous vegetation can inspire formal works of design and are worthy of our gaze, affection and perhaps even love.
