From simple rocks, Akie Nakata gives life to small animals. Thanks to acrylic gouache and meticulous work, the Japanese artist transforms stones into art. The one who defines herself as a “stone artist” is inspired by the shape of the pieces of rock that she picks up before choosing which beast it will become. Dog, fish, bird, hedgehog, lemur… Akie Nakata can create any animal. Her creations are also available for sale on her Facebook page, so that each of her animals finds a home.
