Azuma Makoto

Reading this wonderful article on Freunde von Freunden again about one of my favourites, Japanese botanic artist Azuma Makoto.

Azuma Makoto’s work was one of my biggest inspirations for my project Hanami. By uniting unsual and exotic flora he creates striking large-scale flower installations, blooming decorations for fashion houses and beautifully composed art books such as the Encyclopedia of Flowers, a collaboration with botanical photographer Shinoki Shunsuke.

Take some time to check out this lovely interview by Antonia Märzhäuser and beautiful images by film photographer Gui Martinez of Azuma and his studio space in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo.
