Behind the scenes of the workshop

Strelitzia construction

Strelitzia is Latin for the commonly known crane flower, or 'bird of paradise', a plant indigenous to South Africa with sharp and very elegant flowers. Its orange and purple spines sprout from the green plant as if they were origami butterflies 🦋 sitting on a leaf. The idea of giving a subtle hint of paradise, utopia, colour inside a mostly grey urban context, is a concept Arne Quinze aims to conceive with most of his art. His only wish is to make people smile and be more open towards the other, towards the unknown.
