This is the artist profile of Sergio Luciani. Belonging to the sign of Libra, father of twins and graphic designer, after many years of working designing books for the publishing industry, I decided to make the big leap and try to be an Argentine artist sharing a particular way of being from the southernmost country in the world.
Fast facts: He appeared in these events: several events around the world (Brazil, Mexico, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, China, India, Croatia). He appeared in these magazines: Bonsai puntoar, Bonsai Esprit, China Penjing & Scholars Rocks, etc.
From the Studio Bonsai Argento in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I tried to share my way of feeling bonsai with much of the world, through a clear and simple way to give workshops I could interact with different cultures in Latin America, adding various philosophical aesthetic senses to my work. Formed in Buenos Aires and in Europe, I try to let my work be versatile, adapting myself to the new trends and influences of international schools and teachers, always prioritizing the Latin gene. Since 2018 together with Marija Hajdić I have directed Meleda Bonsai Studio in Dicmo, Croatia.
Awards: Best flower and fruit tree FELAB PC (2014), 3rd prize flower and fruit tree FELAB PC; “Bonsai Angels” award, awarded by the Bonsai Angels International Foundation, for its contribution to the renovation and modernization of the Latin American bonsai (2018), Shohin FELAB PC category awards (2018), among others.
