The East London Flower Collective

The collection is dedicated to the early risers; an ode to those who rise with the sun to buy their flowers at markets across the world: from Pak Khlong Talad in Bangkok, to Adderley Street in Cape

Town, I have always been inspired by the strength and character of those behind the beauty of the gardens and bouquets we all enjoy.

The prints feature my mixed media drawings and painting from the flowers I’ve photographed around the world: orchids from Pak Khlong Talad in ny hometown Thailand, to the roses of Columbia Road market in London.

Futhermore, it is a tribute to the gardeners and growers around the world; especially those who cultivating the movement of local, seasonally grown flowers.

I am the ‘accidental florist’ in this collection, someone who came to discover the healing of nature and flowers when i least expected it.

Bangkok-born, London-based textile designer Lisa King always knew her Indonesian mother was an avid collector, from kimonos to Japanese crockery and furniture. But after spending six years sorting through her prized possessions following her death, she discovered there was one more surprise.

Nowness: Seeding Solace

Antonis Hadjimichael exposes the London-based print designer’s process, building abstract floral arrangements as a means of catharsis

For Bangkok-born print artist Lisa King, flowers lie at the heart of her process. Compiled in abstract compositions that later become her prints, her flowers are dissected stem to stigma, or with heads severed, as pools of ink diffuse in the water surrounding them. Arising in her practice as a cathartic response that pays tribute to her late mother, the floral arrangements upon which King’s design work is centered have become a symbol of solace – the act of laying and repeating patterns guiding her in processing her grief.

“Through repeating familiar rituals and deconstructing the act of arranging flowers I’ve found renewal, positivity, and healing at the hardest of times. No one has captured the essence of my process or inspiration quite the way Antonis has.”
