Japanese artist Miki Hatano pursues themes of nature, paradise, and power in their artwork. The artist studied design in Tokyo and has been painting since 2013. Mainly working with acrylic paints, Miki creates brightly colored artworks. Natural fluxes of energy are of primary focus in Miki’s paintings which depict moments of relaxation, exuberance, and excitement. By painting sunsets and bodies of water Miki is able to convey shifts of energy, movement, and changes of nature all within a single frame.
Miki’s artwork often features portraiture of aquatic animals or beach scenes. As a frequent traveler, the artist is especially inspired by Hawaiian culture and with a keen appreciation of natural environments, the artist uses color pallets observed during their travels. Organic forms found in landscapes, such as flora and fauna are complemented by the use of geometric patterns and shapes, creating frames and a collage effect to each painting. Miki is an artist represented by Agora Gallery whose works have been exhibited internationally.
