Master florists / Daniel Santamaria
Floral handicraft is my great passion, a way of life with a high emotional content. I express feelings and sensations, I communicate through floral materials. I was born to be florist!
A floral space For me, a floral space is where floral handicraft can be found in its most innovative and inspirational state.
Creativity does not mean improvisation without method.
The combination and fusion between shapes and natural materials is my goal, through that fusion I get new ideas and discover a wide range of floral concepts and create new craft possibilities.
The strong contrasts in my homeland, the vast blue sky, the savage nature, the Mediterranean and the architecture of a city like Barcelona, with artists like Antoni Gaudí, Norman Foster, Antonio Tapies, to name but a few, are all elements that unite to form what has been, without doubt, a great inexhaustible manual of inspiration. “Originally consists of returning to the origin, so, the original is the simplicity of the early solutions”. A phrase from Antoni Gaudí, who I always have in mind and who helps me find ways to evolve the profession of floral handicraft.
Sources of inspiration help me in my evolution as a commercial and artistic florist. Discovering and understanding different cultures and the history of art are two very inspirational paths in my personal evolution.
