Known as Akie Nakata, lover of art and nature. Wants to paint life, bringing to light the spirit that are hidden under each stone. We feature Akita in this article today:

“For me, rocks are not simply materials or a canvas to paint pictures. Among all these numerous stones on the shore of a river, a stone, which looks like an animal, comes to my attention. When I find a stone, I feel that the stone also found me. The stones have their own intentions, and I consider my encounters with them as signals that they give me, it is okay to go ahead and paint what I see in them.”

“Then the stones on which I choose to paint are not arbitrary, there are significant stones that I have established a connection with, that is what inspires me to work with them. In my encounters with stones and in my art, I respect the stones, and never cut a border to alter the shape”.

“The stones may fall outside our usual definition of living organisms, but when I think of the long time it takes for a stone to change of a huge rock in the mountains to the size and shape that it has when it rests in my hand, I feel curious about the history that has suffered in silence for millennia. I notice that there is life within them, so sometimes as I paint I talk to them while I hold them in my hand.”

“To get to the surface of the living being which I feel in every stone, I do it with much care. I consider each step, for example, if I am positioning the spine in the right place. What is good? Am I forcing something that is not consistent with the natural shape of the stone? I’m going with care”.

“I put my brush on the stone when I really feel that the stroke is correct. In this sense, my painting is a dialogue with the stone. It is the stone that determines what I paint on it, not me. The art that I want to create is a life newly born in my hands through my dialogue with the stone. I want to paint the life, the living spirit of the being that I feel within the stone”.

Without a doubt, Akie Nakata is a very deep artist, check out his works below

I paint the eyes at the end, and I believe that my work has been completed only when I see that the eyes come to life and look at me directly. For me, completing a work is not about how many details drawing, but if I feel the life in the stone”.
