Hiroshi Hayakawa’s lovely figurative works are finely crafted, just like his first artistic love—paper origami.
I work in many mediums, so it’s kind of hard to summarize my style, but if I had to pick a word, it would be “realism.” I have special appreciation and strong love for art that’s deeply rooted in realism. Sometimes I do make abstract marks with my art, but that only functions as a secondary element. My core has always been realism.
Figurative works. The human body has always fascinated me. Also, it is the very foundation of all art and design; that hasn’t changed and will never change throughout our history.
There are too many of them to name. I have a different list of artists who influenced me for each medium I use. Generally speaking, I get influenced by artists who challenge themselves by pushing the potential of their mediums, both in concept and execution.
