Quirky fantastical creatures with oversized eyes by Haoto Nattori

Japanese artist Naoto Hattori creates adorable quirky creatures hybridizing animals from different species and nature’s elements, such as verdant fields with trees, lakes, and mushrooms. Their oversized eyes provide an extra level of cuteness despite their bizarre forms, sometimes looking as true allegories.

I’m not particular about surrealism, but I like to draw an image which can’t be expressed in words, such as feelings, thoughts, and emotions in my mind. The eye feels like an entrance to the world of visionary memories. I often paint a piece which visualizes myself as a hybrid creature entering the visionary world. The images are twisted but it feels like meditation and calms me down.
