NAOTO HATTORI "SUPER BIONICS "
Naoto Hattori's 4th solo show with CoproGallery introduces us to Super Bionics which is the combination of Biology + Creative thoughts (unit of life form). In ancient Greek Mythology there are so many gods and creatures. Did they actually see the creatures and gods? No, they imagined and created what they look like much like people's imagination of devils, dragons, phoenix's, fairies, aliens etc..
For this show Naoto has painted deities, creatures of his thoughts and theories, alter egos and spiritual beings. Naoto says "Those creatures have never lived in my imagination before but since I have painted them, they have come alive and I feel like I have created a new world in my mind. That's what motivated me to paint Super Bionics."
Naoto studied graphic design in Tokyo before moving to New York to study at the School of Visual Arts where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in illustration in 2000. As well as painting, he works in editorial, CD and book covers, flyers, posters, skateboard and snowboard design.Hattori has received awards from the Society of Illustrators and the New York Directors Club and has been featured in publications such as Juxtapoz, Spectrum, Airbrush Action, and others. He has exhibited at numerous galleries across the United States and the world.
