My Elderly Space

A look at the remarkable lives of the elderly

 

Appreciation for nature grows with age

Mr. Chikabo Kumada spent his life capturing the beauty of nature in his drawings. At 97 years old, he continues with his busy career as a botanical illustrator. PingMag has an interesting and insightful discussion with Mr. Kumada about his life and his work.

Having been an illustrator his whole life, Mr. Kumada's career peaked when he was in his 80s.

"My 80s were really like the bloom of youth for me. But when you reach such an age, you could really die at any moment. So I felt that it was important that I didn’t miss anything [...] I realized I was able to see things in flowers and leaves that I hadn’t been able to see before...."
