A fantastical world created by Wonderland Artist chiaki kohara


Almost as if she were playing in instrument, the lines of her drawing stretch out freely
and a fantastical world begins to appear on the canvas.

This art which came into being as if it was sung
will become somebody's wonder, somebody's hope, somebody's tomorrow.

That's right.
The worlds created by chiaki kohara
have a mysterious power.

Her drawing tools, and brushes, and canvas
and the sparking sequins
and the tattered boxes of candy
all support her so,
she shares her awesome power.

Surrounded by friends
she stands up against the darkness.
No matter how strong the enemy, it cannot win against her love.

To make art is to fight.
By making art, you can make the world a happier place.

The is the world which chiaki kohara makes.
