About

Hattori was born in 1967 in Shizuoka and now resides in Tokyo after being educated at Jyoyo Gakuen Junior College. Hattori's delightfully whimsical print conveys the light-hearted 'joie de vivre' of Arthur Freed's lyric 'Singing in the Rain' which was popularised in MGM's movie of the same name.
