About

me

Maki Hasegawa is an artist and illustrator living in Milan, Italy, since 1999 when she has started to study fine art in the Painting department at Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera. Her artistic experience bases in drawing and painting magical and ordinary at the same time, beings, objects, nature, landscapes, animals with detailed descriptions. She creates goods under the brand name Abstractales other than illustration paintings.

Her art is based on the idea that the human aesthetic consists in searching for a little something in the distance, like people feel great when they find a star they know in the dark huge sky. If there is a lack of vision, this becomes an important discovery and it is creative.This idea leads the artist to be inspired by the miniature paintings, idea of landscapes, and the focus on the meticulous expressions.

長谷川 真樹
1999年にミラノのブレラ美術学院へ絵画と美術を学ぶために留学して以来、ミラノで在住・活動をしています。作家の制作経験は、細やかな描き込みを伴った日常的なものと不思議なものが同時に共存するような生き物、物、風景のドローイングやペインティングに基づいています。イラストを描くことに加え、Abstractalesというブランド名にて紙製品や布製品を製作しています。
広大な夜空で、知っている星を見つけた時の喜びを感じるように、遠くに見える小さなものを確かめようとする探究心や欲望は私たち人間の美意識の源となっています。見えないことがあるから重要な発見へと探求心をかられるようなエネルギーを大切にしたいと考えています。このエネルギーは、細密画や日常風景のコンセプトへの関心につながっています。それは作家自らが生きながら見つけてきた自然とのつながりや、眺めている風景へのアイデアです。
