Masashi Hattori

Masashi Hattori(b.1977, Hokkaido) investigates communication between people, creating sculptural artwork in various media. His observations and explorations of human nature from various angles are expressed through his signature icon “human”. He strives to create a new kind of “interesting” by harmonizing collective memories and the five senses. His unique expression has gained much recognition, including a nomination for the Taro Okamoto Award for Contemporary Art (TARO Award).
