“Surfing Ochibi ⅩⅩⅩⅥ” by Elena presents a vibrant and dynamic scene featuring her beloved fictional character, “Chibi-chan,” in a whimsical reimagining of the iconic “Great Wave off Kanagawa.” This piece transforms the traditional wave into a lively composition filled with an array of “Chibi-chan” characters, depicted in black and white. Each “Chibi-chan” exhibits unique expressions and forms, contributing to a sense of chaotic harmony as they navigate the undulating waves.


The background is a colorful blend of pastel clouds in hues of pink, purple, yellow, and blue, creating a dreamy and surreal atmosphere. A stylized Mount Fuji stands in the distance, providing a calm and serene contrast to the energetic motion of the waves and animated figures.


The boats, brimming with “Chibi-chan” characters, sail through this fantastical sea, highlighting themes of adventure and exploration. These small, plump, and rounded figures have been emotional companions for Elena from her teenage years to the present day, guiding her through life’s challenges. “Chibi-chan” symbolizes the path to a bright and new life, and their unique yet serene forms emerge and disappear amidst the captivating waves.
