Japanese Hideyuki Niwa grew up surrounded by flowers. Familiar from an early age with their qualities, vulnerabilities and potential, a career as a floral designer was a logical next step. At the age of 20, he graduated from Tokyo’s Flower College, which immediately opened doors at Kamon Flower Gate Co Ltd; a rich and fertile working environment where his talent only sharpened.
Top French florist Jacques Castagné was Champion of France in 2002 and Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 2004. He is a member of the Groupe d’Art Floral Interflora and has his own flower shop in Paris.
In the book Newlands we meet the floral artist Jacques Castagné. In collaboration with top photographer Daniel Mettoudi and with designer Martin Low, he elevates floral art to pure art. The ephemeral is immortalised. A unique experience.
