Born in Japan in 1975, Naoto Hattori moved to NYC to study in the School of Visial Arts where he recieved a BFA in 2000. Athough his dreamlike work vaires in size, his minature bijou paintings have given him even more notice. The large a perfectly matched frames compliment the surreal, odd, sometimes-creepy and other-times trippy creatures. The painting above, "BABY DRAGON 04"
2 x 2.8 inches (frame size 4.3 x 5 inches) Acrylic on board is SOLD, but his other work can be seen in galleries across the nation as well as on his website below.
As of October 2016, I intend to use this blog as an accompaniment to my Facebook page and Instagram page. On this blog I will post information and updates about my work as well as once a month I will highlight an artist whose work I like. Additionally, as of March 2017, I will begin posting a monthly Story Entry with an accompanying illustration of mine.
