Events July 10th - The Americas Cup - Leo Bione
Leo is creating unique details in his compositions. In both his bridal bouquet and corsage for example, he has mini Phalaenopsis in a special way transformed.
Event 3 - Table for Two: The Oceans of the Americas.
The first thing I thought of was a paradise setting, very close to the sea, with water reaching out to touch his bare feet, at sunset, accompanied by a nice meal with fresh fruit and a special drink. Initially I researched the topic to seek out elements that might arouse interest. The inspiration to develop the theme just came naturally, spontaneously.Leo worked with the roses Dejavu:"The roses are beautiful, delicate and the color is perfect in my arrangement."
I thought of a young couple on honeymoon, a scene of contemplation of the natural summer beauty of the American coast, exchanging glances, singing your favourite songs.
It’s very sculptural, and often quite organic. I love movement, but also massed compositions, with rich textures and visual impact.
My mother, father and my wife, because they are the biggest supporters of my work.
Event 4: Bridal Bouquet; Free theme
I was looking for something that had meaning in the context of the competition, so I created a bouquet for a wedding on the beach. The piece is characterized by a wealth of details and textures, movement and lightness.
A beautiful young woman, tall, resolute, with a hint of romance, uncomplicated. The groom, a young, outgoing, affectionate man with a taste for the arts and an irreverent personality.
Daniel Ost, Deborah De La Flor, Per Benjamin, Damien Koh, Gregor Lersch, Ivan Moreno and Tannus Saab.
Event 5: Corsage; Free theme.
It is difficult to determine accurately the time between the preparation of the basic constructions and research. But I’m sure there were more than 120 hours of work. The preparation was intensive but extremely enjoyable! This Cup also provides a chance for some serious reflection on floral art, besides being an opportunity for personal and professional growth, with the exchange of experiences and building new friendships through contact with competitors from many countries
For now, there is no competition in sight, but plans for the future.
