Belgians these days to New York to draw, have an extra reason to make a trip in the direction of the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) to consider. The sixteenth edition of the world-renowned Orchid Show put the spotlight on our fellow countryman Daniël Ost.
The Belgian Daniël Ost is all a time regarded as the greatest artist in the world.
Not for nothing was he the only foreigner to have ever got a chance to exhibit in the rooms of the Japanese emperor. Also nicknamed ‘the Picasso of the floral arrangements,” or comparisons with artists such as Anish Kapoor and Claes Oldenburg are not out of the blue.
One flower apart sometimes says more than ten thousand gathered
Itself remains Ost documents to the attention: “I saw this opportunity as a challenge. The collection here is pretty impressive, as is the dedication of the people in the NYBG.’
Ost wants the individuality of orchids emphasize. “Many species are epiphytes: they grow on trees all by themselves and not in clusters,” he explains, ” I have no colorful combinations, but have each plant individually shine. One flower apart sometimes says more than ten thousand flowers at each other.’
Flower arrangement for everyone
Also who in the coming weeks in New York hit, can enjoy the extraordinary work of Daniel Ost.
Both in the shop in Sint-Niklaas in Brussels – both housed in beautiful art-nouveaupanden – you step into the world of our Belgian royal warrant holder.
And you don’t have generous amounts down to count: for a few tens of euros, you step outside with a beautiful bouquet. The chance that you have that out of the hands of daughter Nele said, is great: it is since a few years as a creative director to take the helm.
The sixteenth edition of the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden lasts until 22 april 2018. There are thousands of orchids on display and also a series of installations by Daniel Ost.
