The Art of Flowers
Presented by Fine Art Asia and Hana Art
Ikebana is the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement, in which blossoms, branches, leaves and stems start their new lives as materials for art making. At Fine Art Asia 2022, renowned antique galleries Ming Gallery and Wui Po Kok collaborate with Hana Art, a well-known Japanese Sogetsu floral design school to present a special exhibition “The Art of Flowers”. In this talk, Elegant Wong, director of Ming Gallery and Warren Cheng, director of Wui Po Kok will discuss some of their antique vessels featured in this exhibition. Using the antique vases from the two galleries, Jennie Wei and Pauline Wong, instructors from Hana Art, will demonstrate the process of Ikebana live on stage. The speakers will explore how Chinese and Japanese cultures can be combined to accentuate the beauty of floral art and antiques.
