The art of Makoto Azuma uses flowers and plants as its starting point. In a series of sculptures, installations and interactive events, he delights in blurring the boundaries between nature and artifice. Azuma founded the floral atelier Jardins des Fleurs in 2002, taking commissions from private clients as well as brands and corporations, both in Japan and all over the world. His parallel career as an artist began in 2005 and involves creating and exhibiting artworks that turn flowers and plants into a medium for self-expression. Featuring more than sixty projects captured in breathtaking photography, this beautiful book is the most comprehensive showcase of Azuma’s art ever published.
The STILY Book Collection
Curated primarily from small independent Japanese, English and French publishers, private auctions, sceptical rare book collectors and dishevelled vintage book shops around the world, our new book range canvases intriguing, esoteric and small-run titles. Due to this somewhat labour-intensive curation strategy, availability of each title is very limited.
