Budzai: The Toronto artist who grows in spirals


You surely know the Bonsai of cannabis, meeting with the Budzai.

Using traditional techniques designed to shape bonsai, Peter M, an artist from Toronto, has transformed two ordinary cannabis plants into mesmerizing spiral sculptures. At first glance, it is not easy to recognize weed plants, it looks more like a crooked tree, with thick trunks and almost no leaves.

Peter M.'s plants are on his Instagram account and are not meant to be smoked. Here are some pictures for the pleasure of the eyes.

Peter M has no previous experience with cannabis plants and has no desire to consume his work at the moment.

« J’ai décidé un jour de créer un art vivant semblable à un bonsaï, mais avec quelque chose de plus controversé et d’énervant « , raconte Peter M à Lift & Co.

« Je cultive pour l’art et pour ma propre recherche « , dit-il. « Pour l’instant, je me concentre sur la croissance végétative et le design visuel de mes plantes. » Bien qu’un jour, il espère que ses sculptures seront exposées dans une galerie.

« Je veux aussi encourager les gens à se développer de façon non conventionnelle et à briser la stigmatisation du cannabis. »

For this cause, Peter M has joined forces with Plant With Benefits, a collective of cannabis bloggers, to raise awareness of safe culture among more Canadians.

In some respects, siblings Budzai have very similar needs to those of normal potted plants (insulated culture tent, an 150 W LED, fans, a charcoal filter), but as many can attest, grow a cannabis plant at home can be a challenge in itself.

The Budzai diet includes much more detailed tasks, including low and high stress training, leaf pruning, rubber wiring to manipulate the trunk (very slowly), and wooden sticks to support heavy plants. up. Not to mention a lot of patience.

« Le plus grand défi que j’ai trouvé, c’est de garder les plantes vivantes et prospères tout en gérant leur aspect créatif « , dit Peter M.  » C’est un art vivant et il peut être imprévisible, ce qui le rend plus excitant pour moi « .
