Artist Paints Adorable Animals On Rocks

February 28th, 2018

Decades ago consumers saw the pet rock craze. Simple rocks were sold, and teens couldn’t get enough. This artist is taking the pet rock to a whole new level. Japanese artist Akie Nakata paints vivid details onto stones, pebbles, and rocks. These cute creations look just like tiny animals! Once you see her collection, you’ll be dying to get your hands on one yourself.

Akie sees the world in a unique way, and it is this perspective that has guided her art. “To me, completing a piece of work is not about how much detail I draw, but whether I feel the life in the stone,” she shares. Here are 25 photos of her amazing artwork.

Those eyes are magical.

“Stones have their own intentions, and I consider my encounters with them as cues… to go ahead and paint what I see on them,” the artist shares.
