What is Contemporary Floral Art?

It is a creative expression that utilizes exotic floral elements and a careful handling of the elements and principles of design to create drama, visual impact and style with flowers. Using line which is a very important element of design one can create exciting positive and negative spaces that will transform in to what is considered Contemporary Floral Design.  You need to recognize and understand that the disciplines of Sogetsu and Ikebana are the roots and the essence of what is considered Contemporary Floral Art in today’s world.  The simplicity and the minimalist approach of these two forms of oriental floral art is where we go when it comes to evolve as a Modern and Contemporary Floral Designer.
