Much belated post about my artist friend Nakanari~
Gomen ne Nakanari for being super late in making this post,, D;
I knew Nakanari from when I lived in Orlando and I've always thought what he does is awesome and inspirational, as you know I LOVE art and anything kawaii~ Born in Taiwan, Nakanari's inspirations mostly comes from Japanese manga culture♥ My Best friend is also Taiwanese so I see that there is alot of Japanese influences in Taiwan such as manga/anime and Hello Kitty cafe~ :D
Who is Nakanari?
Nakanari born in Taiwan, creator of "Misfits of Nakanari" and show director of B.B.Birdy's Funny Club series, brought the idea to have artists bring their 2D artwork to 3D artwork on blank canvas toys. Nakanari created and partnered with various artists to bring their artwork to reality (2005 - Crossover Show "Gallery Nucleus/LA ad Rotofugi/Chicago", 2007 - Project Vinyl "FX Show Toy" with partners in Me Llamo Jellyfish, 2008 - Technobabble "myplasticheart/New York" with Dave Quiles). Nakanari and artist Soujohn created a new brand called Mai-Hiro. The Mai-Hiro brand focuses on strong character design and illustration. Nakanari has a distinct style, uses clean graphic lines and shapes, with a soft pastel palette framed by contrasting thick bold black lines. Nakanari prefers to showcase his artwork on canvas using the flat colors technique than to play with shadows. Nakanari’s Eastern Oriental culture is infused into his artwork. Nakanari has exhibited with other well knows artists and brand like Kidrobot, boblbe-e,The Dirtycream, KusoVinyl, CarzyLables and has exhibited in America, France, HongKong, Taiwan, Singapore and Spain.
