Installations by Belgian Floral Artist Daniel Ost
Now in its 16th year, The Orchid Show showcases thousands of dramatically displayed orchids in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory featuring a series of installations crafted by Daniel Ost. Each living sculpture celebrates the complex beauty of these stunning flowers, highlighting individual orchids attached in such a way that each flower and form can be seen and appreciated. One of the world’s leading floral artists, Ost uses flowers as a means of expression. His large-scale artworks have been tailored to the unique environment of the landmark Victorian-style Conservatory, complementing the architecture of the building while creating a transformative, dazzling spectacle of color, form, and texture.

About Daniel Ost
Ost is celebrated worldwide for his eye-catching installations in private and public spaces, working with both living and cut flowers. His large-scale artwork has drawn comparison to that of renowned sculptors Anish Kapoor, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Goldsworthy. In Belgium he has been called “the Picasso of flower arranging,” and in France he was touted as “the international star of floral decoration.”
