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.
