Hane Illustration Prize for outstanding achievement in illustration. Says Tim Maclean, for w ow x wow, “Matt Dangler constructs fantastically inspired and engaging imagery, which contains the power to reveal new and undiscovered aspects of the personalities of each and every one of us, by speaking directly to our subconscious and therefore our inherent inner beings."
Naoto Hattori studied Graphic Design in Tokyo before moving to New York to study in the School of Visual Arts. He has received awards from the Society of Illustrators, the New York Directors Club, Communication Arts and also he has won numerous art competitions and has been published in many art magazines. Of his work, he says: “My vision is like a dream, whether it’s a sweet dream, a nightmare, or just a trippy dream. I try to see what’s really going on in my mind, and that’s a practice to increase my awareness in stream-of-consciousness creativity. I try not to label or think about what is supposed to be, just take it in as it is and paint whatever I see in my mind with no compromise. That way, I create my own vision.”
