Sarina Nihei: Small People With Hats

Having graduated from Tama Art University in Tokyo with a BA in graphic design in 2012, Sarina Nihei moved to London to start a Masters degree at the Royal College of Art in London. After graduating from the RCA with an MA in animation, she now works as a successful freelance animator and illustrator.

Sarina Nihei's 2014 RCA graduation short, 'Small People With Hats', is now online and captures a strange reality in which small people wearing hats find themselves subjected to ridiculous and fatal situations.

The beautifully realised hand-drawn animation (in textural acrylic paints and black pen on paper) is brilliantly scripted, visually stylish and, despite it's absurdest style, a successfully compelling commentary on politically driven social cleansing.
