LOVE HIRO ANDO
Hiro Ando is a Japanese artist celebrated for his unique sculptural work that is not quite like anything else currently on the market. This multidisciplinary artist creates artworks that facilitate a special conjunction of the old and new. Ando mostly does this by relying on the traditional maneki-neko, standing for “lucky cat” within the Japanese mass culture, a motif Hiro constructs in figures of various forms, such as those of samurai, sumo wrestlers or robots.
From art galeries to MUSEUMS
Hiro Ando is an internationally appreciated pioneer in the japanese neo-pop art.
In the last decade the artist dedicated himself with numerous public installations with his infamous cats in Porto Montenegro, Paris, etc.
With recent viewings in collections as the Israel Museum of Jerusalem, he confirms his notoriety again.
