hara katsiki, also known as "inklovespaper," is a visual artist and awardwinning art director, born in greece. though mainly known for illustration, she expresses her creative vision across all types of media: graphic design, animation, costume design and music.
her personal work delves into realms of the subconscious, is populated by fantastic figures and otherworldly creatures, and decorated by ornamental patterns. she is familiar with drawing tools, both analog (ink, watercolors, graphite, acrylics, etc) and digital (adobe cs, including after effects) and freely uses them all when realizing her projects.
currently, she is based in berlin and her illustration work has garnered recognition like the 2010 swatch young illustrator's award ("opium"), and the official alfa romeo fine art prints collection ("synthetic imagination"). her fine art is also being showcased in her first solo exhibition at the west berlin gallerie in this upcoming september.
