Ando (1973) is a contemporary multidisciplinary artist, who has used oil on canvas, digital supports and worked in video art. His work conflates Japanese archetypes like Hello Kitty, the Panda, the Samurai, the Sumo wrestler, creating a dialogue between traditional past and present culture.


The shiny, smooth materials, the bright colours, the sharp but rounded shapes of his sculptures take us to the world of Mangas in which the artist’s generation grew up in. His friendly, anthropomorphized animal figurines are interpreted as a contemporary take on traditional Maneki-Neko (lucky cat).
