Anthony Ward, also known as The Flower Guru, lives at the cutting edge of the world of floral art. His unique and disciplined art form blends the aesthetics of nature with ceremony, music, dance, and stage-crafted improvisation. He blends elements of color, shape, line, and form to highlight the essence and spirituality of plant life.
Anthony is the author of the groundbreaking Being with Flowers: Floral Art as Spiritual Practice, lovingly endorsed by Alice Walker, Julia Butterfly Hill, and Dr. Jane Goodall.
Anthony’s creative expression reaches way beyond arranging blooms—from the totality of stems and leaves, the choice of the vessel, and all of the elements that surround the living and spontaneous sculpture.
Ward has been performing on stage since 2002 with bands, DJs, and performers, merging dance and floral art in a completely unique and original way. He performs globally and is the subject of the documentary Dancing with the Flowers. Anthony has created floral sculptures for events by STS9, Tipper, and the Polish Ambassador. He’s been showcased by Maya Angelou, Al Gore, the Dalai Lama, Madonna, and many others.
