"Beauty is a kind of connection, it originates from true honest communication and trust between people, it can't be observed with eyes but lies in the real events that happen everyday around us."

Alfie Lin 凌宗湧
Flower Installation Artist
Since the first day he began to create floral art designs, he sensed that florals are a part of small and great moments,
as well as each and every stage of our lives. Contained within are not only visual impressions, but a beauty which exists in the glimpse it takes to touch one’s heart. Most of his creative inspiration stems from observations of the environment around him. Through his eyes, he discovers the natural contours and patterns of each location.In his works, his techniques are crystallized and presented through the designs which accentuate the latent loveliness of the natural materials’ original form, resulting in distinctively natural floral design styles that are simplistic, refreshing, and imbued with elegance and passion.
