Naoki Sasaki

As one of the youngest members of Japan’s long and fruitful tradition of floral artists, Naoki Sasaki manages to hold his own very well. In a short time, he made himself noticed, won several prestigious prizes and grew from a promising name to one of the most respected masters of both traditional and contemporary Japanese floral art.


Although Sasaki’s art is difficult to define, the rhythm of the seasons is a recurrent source of inspiration. The fact that Sasaki bases his art on the uniqueness of the plant and not on a preconceived concept also explains the particular diversity of his compositions, which are sometimes simple but can also appear extremely delicate. This splendid monograph is the first retrospective work of this young, talented artist and will certainly convince those who were still in doubt of Naoki Sasaki’s extraordinary gift.
