Japanese Bonsai Tree Takes a 10-Year Journey Around the Globe #ArtTuesday
We’re loving this project from artist Azuma Makoto, via My Modern Met.
Conceptual artist Azuma Makoto pushes the boundaries of traditional Japanese flower arrangement, taking his plant and flower designs to entirely new levels. Makoto’s 10-year project Shiki: Landscape and Beyond, captures the journey of a Japanese white pine bonsai tree around (and above) the globe. Makoto creates art using plants placed in bizarre and unnatural settings and, through his botanical sculptures, embraces the forms of beauty within the natural world from an abstract perspective.
