Naoto Hattori. Japanese pop surrealism. “I've been creating the imaginary world within my mind ever since I was a child. My vision is like a dream, where it's a sweet dream, a nightmare or just a bizarre dream.” Hattori says. Born in Yokohama at 1975, he studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York. His paintings could be mistaken with digital art, but he does a spectacular work with acrylic. A fantastic and prolific imaginary is what we found in his gallery, as he says fruit of a “practice to increase awareness in stream-of-conscious creativity”. And here are some samples. His work is currently been exhibited on “Les Enfants Terribles”, with Robert Crumb, Ray Caesar, and many others, from September 15 to December 31, 2011, at l’Hôtel de Région Rhône Alpes, Lyon, France.   [vimeo][/vimeo]
