2010 Back in Japan, Started career as a painter using cray-pas (oil pastel) Chiaki Akada is a Japanese painting artist. Her work is known for its vivid colors using cray-pas (oil pastel). She put color cray-pas first and cover it all with black/brown cray-pas, then scratch with a solid material. In most of her works, we see flowers, human (especially girls), music, time, moon, and animals. Which means they will be (or are already) gone. She represents beauty and preciousness of brief moment and feeling of sorrow, affection, emptiness and love through these motifs. This is why her work is fully energetic.

2010 After returning home, start activities mainly in Kansai.
I participated in numerous group exhibitions and art events.
