For close to 20 years Ryan Neil has been a practicing Bonsai artist in America. The director of this short Ryan Bush provides an insightful look into the process and philosophical approach that Neil practices when he works with his Bonsai. There is a strong pursuit for balance. Balance through the design of the Bonsai as well as understanding the tree and what it needs to thrive. Overall I just found the video very calming.
Take a look at Ryan Neil's exquisite collection of Bonsai here at Mirai - American Bonsai.
