Sergio Cuan (AKA MACH5 in the bonsai community) is a largely self taught bonsai artist. He has taken workshops with prominent bonsai masters Bill Valavanis, Mauro Stemberger and Bjorn Bjorholm which he continues to take from time to time to further his bonsai studies and skills. Although Sergio works on a variety of species such as Engelmann spruce, Rocky Mountain juniper and Eastern white cedar, he has developed a particular interest and passion for a wide range of deciduous species which include maples, elm and beech among many others.

Sergio’s work has appeared in International Bonsai magazine, Bonsai Focus magazine and Bonsai Bark blog. His work has been shown at numerous exhibitions and have received several awards including “Finest Deciduous Award” at the 2014 US National Bonsai Exhibition in Rochester, NY and “Best in Show” at the 2016 Winter Silhouette Expo in Kannapolis, NC.
