Small People with Hats

This is a hand-drawn animation with acrylic paints and black pens on paper. The story is about the small people wearing hats who cannot avoid ridiculous situations happening in society. From the surreal and ironic perspective, this animation represents absurdity and relativity in the society.

  • I do hand-drawn animation on paper with acrylic paints. 

    Most of my work is narrative, made on the basis of thoughts regarding the world where irrational conduct is accepted.

    I make animation with satire, surrealism and absurdity.
