The world of botanics according to Stein Are Hansen

Stein Are Hansen gives regular lectures and demonstrations in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Austria, China and Taiwan. He is the third internationally renowned floral artist to be selected for this prestigious series of monographs. This book is a truly breathtaking compilation of his best work.


Stein Are Hansen is probably one of the most eccentric floral designers with a worldwide reputation. He was Norwegian champion several times and finished third in the 1999 European Championships.
Currently, he works partly in China and partly in Norway. Recently, he created his first floral shop in Oslo, in an entirely unique and inimitable gothic atmosphere. Hansen prefers to work in a minimalist way and likes to include non-professional models (often florists themselves…) in his tableaux. Like no other, he succeeds in surprising his audience time and time again with wonderful scenes. Colleagues from all over the world consider him an artistic genius.
