Japanese, b. 1973, Shikoku, Japan I based in Tokyo, Japan

Fueled by endless happenings and rich diversity only a world-class metropolis like Tokyo can offer, Hiro Ando is a Japanese artist celebrated for his unique sculptural work that is not quite like anything else currently on the market.

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.
