Chad Sinclair, who comes from Vancouver, Canada, is 42 years old now, and has been living in Sichuan for 18 years. If you ask him what is he most interested in about Sichuan? He will definitely give you the answer, “bonsai”.
Chad's grandmother is a big fan of China. Under the influence of his grandmother, Chad is also very interested in Chinese culture. In 2006, Chad came to Chengdu, and started to learn how to make a Sichuan bonsai. The various bonsais in Chengdu have attracted Chad deeply. He likes to go to the parks to see them, such as Baihuatan Park, Wangjiang Tower park, Chengdu Wuhou Shrine, etc. These places provide a good chance for Chad to learn Sichuan bonsai.
Through imitation and innovation, Chad gradually formed his own style of making bonsai. His creation combined Western simple beauty and Chinese artistic conception beauty, which gained many people's affections.
