You can say that flowers are pieces of art by itself. But you can also use flowers to create stunning artwork. Several artists were inspired by the beauty of nature and created mesmerising designs.
Limzy – Flowerful Visuals
Malaysian visual artist, Limzy uses flowers and other objects to create stunning illustrations. Her brand motto is ‘Sharing joy through art and flowers’ and we think she succeeded. While looking at her art, it is impossible not to feel joy.
A while back we already wrote about Azuma Makota’s Iced Flowers installation but that’s not all that he’s done. His other project, Exobiotanica, is a botanical space flight. He launched a Bonsai tree and a bouquet into the stratosphere with a specially equipped balloon to an altitude of 30,000 metres. That’s what we call out of this world.
David de los Santos’ Blooming Flower Timelapses
It took David de los Santos 9 months and 50,000 shots to make this flowers timelapse. To create this breathtaking video he used Lilium, Hibiscus, Carnations, Orchids, Dandelions, Daisies, Alstroemeria, Peonies and Nigella. Sit back and enjoy his moving Flower Art.
Van Gogh’s Sunflowers
Everyone knows Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings. In 1888 he wrote to his brother about these paintings: ‘In the hope of living in a studio of our own with Gauguin, I’d like to do a decoration for the studio. Nothing but large Sunflowers’. Consequently, Van Gogh inspired other artists with his Sunflowers, like Rob and Nick Carter. They turned his painting into a 3D interpretation for their exhibition called Transforming.
Banksy – Rage, the Flower Thrower
British Graffiti artist, Banksy was also inspired by flowers. His graffiti piece ‘Rage, the Flower Thrower’, on a wall in the West Bank in Jerusalem, shows a man in traditional riot gear. You would think he was about the throw a Molotov cocktail but when you look closely you will see that he is actually holding a bunch of flowers. With this piece, Banksy wants to advocate peace instead of war in this conflicted area.
Kenneth Cobonpue – Bloom Lounge Chair
Who says that art can’t be functional? Back in 2009, Kenneth Cobonque designed the ‘Bloom’, an easy armchair swivel. As the name suggests, Kenneth was inspired by a delicate blossom. His design is composed of hundreds of fine running stitches that radiate from the centre of the seat.
