Olivier Giugni: The Modernist Movement-September 29th!

Olivier Giugni is the most modern of the Master Teachers at FlowerSchool New York. His approach to color is almost always monochromatic, his designs are cutting edge and graphic. In this class he will teach students how to “draw” flowers using color as his paintbrush. He often works with large-scale leaves that enable drama amongst the many flowers in his designs. His aesthetic is clean, modern and delightfully exuberant. To get an idea of Olivier’s designs you may look at  the dramatic flowers that he creates at many of the luxury hotels in New York such as the Carlyle, the Plaza, the Regency and the Pierre.

In the past FlowerSchool New York has paired our Master Florists with famous artist of the past such as van Gogh, John Singer Sargent, Frida Kahlo and Marc Chagall. The Master Florists used these artists as inspirations for their arrangements not necessarily designing flowers that were copies of the paintings.

This fall we will be pairing each of our teachers with a different artistic movement instead of a specific artist. The nature of our Master Classes is to give our teachers the free rein they deserve as artists in their own right. They choose the flowers according to their mood, their artistic vision and their desire to reflect seasonality with respect to flowers and designs. 

The goal is to give you, the students, an insight into the creative process as well as a better understanding of the craft that is used when working with flowers, branches and leaves – all living products of the natural world that surrounds us.
