  • Presents Russian floral artist Sergey Karpunin's fresh ideas for the traditional bouquet shape
Full Description

Russian Sergey Karpunin is a man of many talents. His floral art collected in this first monograph ranges from traditional designs, to refined symmetric arrangements and floral Pop Art. Schooled and proficient in both Ikebana, the minimalist Eastern and classic Western style of arranging, his signature style is technical but never dull or sterile. Karpunin is a prominent figure on the forefront of Russian floristry. As an advisor and referee for many Russian and European floral competitions he influences a whole new generation of budding florists. Sergey Karpunin’s outstanding designs in Stichting Kunstboek’s International Floral Art 2010/2011, deservedly won him the first prize in the book. Reason enough to put this colourful person and his eclectic body of works in the limelight. Contents: Includes three chapters focusing on bouquets in different/contemporary styles: art nouveau, constructivism and pop art. Last two chapters on objects and textures made with plant material.
