ABOUT
Takayuki Tanaka (田中 孝幸) Flower Artist / Chief Designer

Takayuki Tanaka is a "blossoming" flower artist whose unique, self-made career started at a flower market. Having graduated from a university in Tokyo, Tanaka worked at a publishing company as an editor prior to entering the flower and plant world.

 

While working at the Ota Flower Market, the biggest flower market in Japan, Tanaka had a fateful encounter with Daniel Ost, a globally renowned flower artist and designer, who later told Tanaka that he should come to the forefront of floral design. Tanaka then went on to assist Ost with his exhibitions and events, including exhibitions at World Heritage temples such as Ninna-ji and Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto. Ost’s rich sensibility and his uncompromising attitude toward flowers keeps inspiring and influencing Tanaka, who considers Ost his lifetime mentor.

 

In 2005, he started his own floral art business and worked on spatial decoration for a variety of events and parties. In 2014, Tanaka co-founded UNITED FLOWERS, a floral design firm intended to globally disseminate the possibilities and the value of flowers and plants.

 

Tanaka’s activities, spanning spatial decoration, art projects, landscape design and advertisement & communication design, always use flowers and plants as communication tools, and he is highly recognized by both individual and corporate clients at home and abroad, including high-end fashion brands, global companies and local governments.

 

What lies in the core of Tanaka’s creativity is a firm faith in the power of flowers and plants to generate new “stories” among people and to give more “life-force” to peoples' connections with each other. In this belief, Tanaka faces flowers and plants wholeheartedly, with a full awareness that he is taking their lives, and tries to bring out their “ultimate beauty” in his own way.

大学卒業後、出版の世界を経て、花植物の世界へ。

花卸売市場からそのキャリアをスタートさせた気鋭のフラワーアーティスト。

 

卸市場勤務時代に世界的フラワーアーティスト ダニエル・オスト氏と出会う。その出会いが運命的な転機となり、氏の「君はフラワーデザインの現場に来るべきだ」の言葉をきっかけに、オスト氏の世界遺産でのエグゼビションやイベントでのアシストワークを手がけるようになる。以後、その感性と花への妥協なき姿勢に影響を受け続け、オスト氏を師と仰ぐ。

 

その後独立。

数々のイベント・パーティー・空間装飾などの現場を積み重ね、キャリア10年を経て、花・植物の価値と可能性を世界規模で発信していく為に、2014年、仲間と共にunited flowers を設立。

 

その活動は、花と植物をツールに、空間装飾をはじめ、ランドスケープ、広告、コミュニケーションデザイン、アートプロジェクトなど多岐に渡る。

個人はもとより、国内外を問わず、ハイファッションブランドからグローバル企業、地方自治体にいたるまで幅広い層から支持を集めている。

 

花・植物と徹底的に対峙し、その命を預かり、東洋的、西洋的を問わず“極限美”にまで確実に昇華させることで、人々の関係性の中に新たな“物語”と“生命力”を、生み出すこと。それこそが田中のクリエイションのすべてである。
