Creating Organic Sculptures Using Petals and Sticks.
Raku Inoue, a multidisciplinary artist, was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1983 and is now based in Montreal, Canada. After studying basic art forms including drawing, painting and handcrafting, he also learned digital photography and its requirements such as lighting, image composition, capturing colours and post-production-editing. While Inoue used to be known for his polymer clay sculptures, his recent works mainly feature organic materials like flowers, leaves and stems of various flora species and have attracted international attention. It is through many different methods and techniques that he challenges himself to continuously evolve as an artist.
