Hanawa loves weaving fragments of old times into new stories. His work is characterized by a retro aesthetics, a dynamic interplay of colors and shades, exuberant detailing that enhances the illusion of three-dimensionality, and a natural touch of surrealism.
Fascinated by vintage art, Hawana exhibits a unique talent in using pencil drawings to express the beauty of roughness and ambiguity – which, in his opinions, speak to the random nature of life.
"True beauty is vague and bewildering, urging us to observe with patience," said Hanawa. "I encourage you to feel the seemingly insignificant bits of love in your life and allow them to wake up your inner awareness."
