Name / Hirama Mario
Birth / March 1977
Born in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture. A graduate of Waseda University.
Living in Tokyo.
The world of flowers is very serene yet extremely powerful,
because it stems from a vision that seeks to apprehend the very essence of
the beauty of japanese culture, with its main focus on the vase, the flower and the surrounding space.
I constantly rethink the very significance of « IKERU »
(which means the act of Ikebana) that infuses the flowers with life .
To bring out the strenght of the object facing me, I seek out empty spaces
to harmonise them resulting in the appearance of a space that captures the onlooker.
I aim to seize the invisible, such as the character of the vase, the voice of the seasons,
the scent and my own heart and life.
In the present age, I believe that "Ikebana" shine more than before.
I pursue approach beyond a field and an expression method while respecting the history.
I wish that I want to impress many people by my Ikebana.
