Fantastic Flowers Art Box

This theme is inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe who revolutionised the still-life genre with soft subdued portraits of blossoms. Andy Warhol, a famous figure in pop-art, produced a series of paintings which he called ‘Flowers’. A Finnish design house called Marimekko, founded by Armi Ratia, has produced many colourful prints over the years inspired by blossoms.
