Naoki Sasaki is a master of traditional and modern Japanese floral art. Sasaki was born into a family that has served for generations as Ikebana masters to the castle of the feudal Lord of Kimono. In the town of Kimono, where Sasaki has his flower business, the atmosphere of the Middle Ages is still alive. Sasaki was the winner of the Golden Leaf in the 05/06 edition of the "International Annual of Floral Art" published by Stichting Kunstboek and now runs his own school. "Naoki Sasaki, Japanese Contemporary Floral Art" is richly illustrated, brilliantly reflecting the talent of this Japanese artist.
