BIOGRAPHY

  • Sera Hano was born in Osaka in 1978 and raised in Kyoto, Japan. She has been working as a 3D illustrator at the Product design office of the Concept House in Kameoka, Japan since 2003. She also has been working as an artist for over 7 years and participated in various art festivals in several countries
including The Japanese Art Festival in New Zealand, The Affordable Art Fair in Sydney and Melbourne,
The Art EXPO in New York and The Earth by Heart Exhibition in Tokyo. She has won several awards, notably the Tagboat award, Tokyo Earth Workers Collection Award and won first place prize at the Colors To Go exhibition in Taiwan. Seri has been drawing since her childhood. One of the most influential people in her life was her father. After seeing her fathers’ product designs as a child, she then decided that she wanted to be an illustrator. When she began drawing, it was freehand drawing with mostly people but since working with her father, she started using computers and realized a digital medium would bring more possibilities to her art work. Since then, she started combining the aspects of freehand drawing with digital art. When she was 26 years old, she went to AUS for the first time to study English. At that time she started to get inspired by the culture of western art, as well as, the beautiful nature of Australia. This moving experience is what she wants to convey to people through her art.
Also, she wants to spread western attitudes to art in Japan and also Japanese sensibilities of harmony and balance with nature to western audiences. She often commutes between Japan and AUS throughout the year finding influences through the vivid colors and patterns in wildlife, particularly wild flowers and birds.
Interrelationships between urban and natural environments peak her interests, as well as their need for conservation. Her art draws from scenes she witnesses while traveling, which has led to mixing textile patterns with Japanese, western and African styles. Although her art is mostly digital, she tries to make it feel more organic and appear to be hand drawn. Starting her drawings freehand with a pencil, she then scans them, creates a digital outline, and then adds color. Printing on normal copy paper creates a unity among the colors of the art. Finally, she adds touchups using pens and highlighters. In future she plans to produce textile design and to provide illustrations for Children’s books.

  • 羽野 瀬里

    

1978年大阪生まれ京都育ちの彼女はプロダクトデザインをしていた父の影響で幼少の頃から絵を描き始め、その頃から夢はイラストレーターになる事だった。始めは手描きで主に人をモチーフに描いていたが、父と仕事をするようになりPCを使い始め、デジタルの幅広い可能性を感じ作品制作に使用するようになった。26歳の頃、語学留学で初めてオーストラリアへ行き欧米のアート文化に触れ、オーストラリアの自然の豊かさに多大な影響を受けた。その感動を絵を通していろんな人に伝えたい。日本でも欧米のようにもっとアートを身近に手軽に普及させたい。そして海外でも絵を通して日本の文化を知ってもらいたいと思うようになった。それから何度もオーストラリアや色々な国へ行き、その国の色彩や動物、特にワイルドフラワーやカラフルな鳥達に影響を受け、たくさんの絵を描き、環境問題や動物愛護についてもテーマに取り入れるようになった。作品制作では、デジタルであるが手描きのような質感、温かみを出す為様々な工夫をしている。始めは手描きのラフスケッチをスキャン、illustratorやphotoshopで線や色をつけた後、普通紙にプリントアウト、そうする事でたくさんの色を使っていても統一感ができる。そこから更にペンやマジックでラインやドットを描いたり、蛍光ペンで色に変化をつけたりしている。自然物に同じ物がない様に、デジタル作品だからと同じ物を繰り返し使わず、木や花、葉なども1つ1つ描いている。今後は絵本やテキスタイルデザインにも活動の幅を広げようとしている。
