Born in the Okayama prefecture of Japan, Chiura Obata was adopted by his uncle, an artist.  As a child he was trained in ink painting, and at 14 he was apprenticed to the painter Murata Tanryo in Tokyo.  He also studied with Kogyo Terasaki and Goho Hasimoto.

In 1903, Obata moved to San Francisco and began working as an illustrator for The New World and The Japanese American, two of the city's Japanese newspapers.  He also did work as a commercial designer.&nb (showing 500 of 5097 characters).
