Ame Norihiko Kamei
Loving the grandeur of nature in a single indoor scene or in the palm of our hand.
This may be a very Japanese sentiment, similar to bonsai, tsuboniwa gardens, and the veranda.
The works created by Norihiko Kamei, an artist and flower arrangement artist, are not only fresh flowers, but also preserved flowers and art flowers, all of which are intended to bring a sense of enrichment to the viewer's heart, just as one feels when looking at nature.
With this wish in mind, he named the group of works "Rain".
Born in 1981 in Osaka.
Graduated from Tokyo Zokei University Graduate School of Art and Design in 2007.
With an aesthetic sense inherent in Japanese culture, such as tea ceremony and flower arrangement, and a unique view of nature that drifts between the boundaries of the natural and the artificial, he creates works that express tranquil scenes.
In July 2020, he opened his atelier "Ame Kitakamakura" in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture.
