Poetry in Flowers with Masao Mizukami
Japanese installation artist and floral designer, Masao Mizukami, was born in Tokyo to an artistic family. He studied Fine Art at the Tokyo Art University and later at the L'Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His marriage to watercolour artist, Yu Lai Yin, as well as extensive travels to various parts of the world, have further inspired and nurtured his creative spirit.
Combining deep thought, sublime passion, sensitive observation of the seasons in nature and by exploring the infinite possibilities in space, Masao transforms each of his floral designs into an extraordinary work of art. His works often remind us to cherish, protect and preserve the beauty of our environment. Leonardo de Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication”. This workshop will reveal how Masao utilizes his talents to crystallize poetry in flowers.
Masao is President of Masao Flower Design Academy in Hong Kong, Professor of Mami Flower Design School in Tokyo, Chairman of HK Association of Flower Arrangement Societies, Senior Advisor to Beijing Flower Association and Technical Advisor to Beijing Olympic Games Flower Distribution Centre. He has published several art albums and also presented numerous solo exhibitions and demonstrations at various venues, including the Hong Kong Government House, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Flower Show and Television Broadcasts Ltd (TVB).
