“Modern Interpretation of Dante’s ‘Divine Comedy’”, which Chiba himself calls it his life’s work, is something that he started in around 2000. Chiba assumes the role of Dante, adopting the stage of the ‘Divine Comedy’ through hell, purgatory, and paradise, to narrate the things he contemplates in the day to day of living in the present Japanese society, as well as feeling of negative emotions that he carries on himself, and finally the spiritual world that arise from it all, using two and three-dimensional artworks.
