His paintings are very modern but inspired by the traditional European painting styles.
Masaki Yada's paintings are characteristic because of his ability to blend being a skilled craftsman and simultaneously a creative artist, alongside the combination of being a Japanese artist with a love of aesthetics and a fascination with European artistic masterpieces.
Masaki Yada grew up in Japan at a time when it was a cultural norm to merge into the crowd, and not express one's own opinion or individuality. You were expected to study hard at school, get a stable, anonymous job until a tranquil retirement. Masaki Yada's art is a clash with this monotonous, self-effacing attitude to life and work.
