Hiroyuki Oka. Monograph

Perfection, symmetry, detail, patience, focus, precision, passion… these are just a few of the concepts that spontaneously spring to mind when we talk about Japanese floral art. It is also these characteristics that ensure that Japanese floral artists remain in a league of their own.


Oka Hiroyuki, one of the youngest members of the current generation of Japanese flower arrangers, is no exception to the rule. But in addition to that typical, detailed craftsmanship and the pursuit of perfect execution, this young artist is endowed with a refreshing sense of humour and a fantastic eye for witty coincidences. This first monograph contains a wondrous collection of his original work, which only reveals its secrets after close inspection. Hiroyuki Oka makes colourful conceptual art that far exceeds the predictability of perfection.
