Who's your favorite bonsai artist and why ?

Spread the word of your favorite artists out there - post pictures of pots, trees, forests, etc.

Thanks,

Graham Potter.  His artistry is without question impeccable his presentations of his work is inspirational. You can see other artists post before and after photos and be inspired to emulate that kind of transformation. You can watch Graham perform open heart surgery metaphorically speaking and be inspired to do the same types of processes. Personally I believe he has made the greatest contribution to bonsai in this Century, as significant as Walter Pall and Masahiko Kimura did in the last.

Walter Pall is from the last Century, this is our luck... to we who want to make western broadleafed bonsai...The Photos Walter did, and ofcourse still is sharing, show us the results of many years of good effective bonsaiwork.
Walters Photos is what I study, in my attempt to make big broadleafed western bonsai, something that is new to me, as I used to make only shohin....


Theese flowers are for you Walter...and may your tounge never become dull  Smile 

Kind regards Yvonne

I choose Vance Wood. He's self taught. He innovated how Mugo pines are worked. He's been doing bonsai since before a lot of us were born. And he's from Michigan!

You deserve it for all things listed above. You were doing it when it wasn't even popular. Barely even heard of in the U.S.A.
Besides if your head exploded we would lose all of the bonsai knowledge in there. That would be a shame.

after taking a workshop w/ arthur joura yesterday, i gotta stick him in my list w/ potter, pall and jun...

mainly because of his approach and his way of looking at things.
a very enlightening day and one of affirmation of some tenets that i hold in regards to this ancient and ever evolving art form...
