Sugiura was born in Kyoto in 1938 and is well known for his flowers silkscreened on a gold leaf background. The gold leaf is hand applied on the Japanese paper in the same technique as for folding screens. He then silkscreens his floral subjects onto the gold leaf. Sugiura has become famous for creating over 100 different interpretations of irises.
