  • Saturday 4th February at 16:30

In 2003, Masashi Hirao became the last apprentice of Japan's great Bonsai master Saburo Kato. Before Saburo-san died he passed on to his apprentice a seemingly impossible mission: to prevent the 1000 year old art from dying-out in the face of a rapidly changing world and achieve his master’s vision of bringing peace to the world through bonsai. Masashi’s early efforts are dogged by many failures but combining his master’s guidance & modern instincts he sets out to travel the world and discover the way, drawing on innovative trends in contemporary art.
