Raku Inoue is a multidisciplinary artist that is taking over the artistic floral Instagram scene with his recent works. The fuss is mainly about his work that's featuring organic materials like flowers, leaves, and stems of different flower and plant species and has attracted international attention. It's definitely worth taking a closer look at the 'Plant Person' series by Reikan Creations
