In my last post, I was wondering whether beautiful design is always good. My answer that is isn’t, but Kiyoshi Kuroda is the kind of man that will make one reconsider this kind of statement.

Kuroda is a japanese illustrator and art director born in Tokyo in 1975. He studied at the Tama Art University, then worked as a graphic designer for a few years before starting to work as a freelancer in 2003.


Widely inspired by nature, his floral designs elegantely combine photography, fashion and illustration. He expresses his sensitivity through his illustrations, graphic designs for magazines, CDs and book, but also shows off his work in worldwide exhibitions as a full artist.

Of course, you should take a look at his hard-to-navigate flash website, you’ll see more of his astonishing work there.
