This huge living flower picture was created at The National Gallery London by The Flower Council of Holland as part of the Gallery’s exhibition of Dutch flower paintings from the 18th and 19th century. It was inspired by Dutch artist Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder’s floral masterpiece. You can see the video of almost 30 florists working for two days straight, using 100 blocks of florist foam, nearly 30,000 stems of 26 different flowers in 37 colours. The Flower Council appointed Kent-based digital printer, PressOn to recreate a huge digital print for the florists to follow.
