Makoto Azuma – talented artist embodies his ideas through installations and sculptures. Works Makoto participate in international exhibitions of floral art and are shown in the best galleries in the world.
A new exhibition of the artist is on an inconspicuous warehouse on the outskirts of Tokyo. Sixteen frozen flower arrangements scattered in space dimly lit room. Petals, leaves and stems are refracted through a thick layer of ice, giving each a bouquet of fantastic new look.
