At first, you would be taken aback by the works of Naoto Hattori upon seeing it. Big-eyed hairy brown creatures that are coming by your feed. These bizarre-looking creatures are pop-surrealism works that are made with a lot of patience because of the fine hairy details that you will see as you take a closer look. You’ll figure that each artwork either forms a reindeer, bear, parrot, insect, or any animal, creature, or object that Naoto can think of. You’ll also notice that mushrooms or trees grow or spur all over the creature. This somewhat whimsical work can make one conclude different guesses as to what type of creature it is, therefore allowing people to share their opinions and start a good discussion for creative visual imaginaries.

We get excited when we see something haunting, right? The deep dark night where there is no turning back until you solve the mystery that underlies in that castle. Grim Reapers, witches, and more haunt the place and you take the quest and see them vanish before your sight only to find out they are right beside you. This is how Nayla’s dark arts can bring chills and excitement when you see them. Everything is created in black and white for sure and the strokes of every artwork have its unique and constant style that’s never tiring to the eyes.
