Information Excerpt:

Kosen Ohtsubo is considered to be one of the most significant living practitioners of the art form of ikebana. While formally trained in electrical engineering from Tokyo Denki University, Ohtsubo rose to prominence in the world of ikebana due to his use of readily available materials such as vegetables and refuse. For decades, he served as the Headmaster’s Advisory Instructor of the Ryusei Ikebana School, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and has presented his work and demonstrations of ikebana technique in such countries as India, Hong Kong, Spain, Holland, England, Korea, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and the United States. Ohtsubo has had two major publications printed in 1981 and 1995.
