Artist Profile

Masako Ando

Masako Ando was born in the Aichi Prefecture in 1976. She graduated from the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Aichi University of the Arts in 2001. She currently lives and works in Seto city, and is an Associate Professor at Aichi University of the Arts.

Her major solo exhibitions include “Hara Documents 9: Masako-Ando – The Garden of Belly Button”(Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, 2012), “Masako Ando ’Songbook’ Commemorating the release of her first art book” (8/ ART GALLERY/ Tomio Koyama Gallery, Tokyo, 2016). Working with motifs such as young children, woolen knitted items, animals, plants and flowers, Ando creates paintings with eloquently smooth surfaces that take advantage of the characteristics of oil paint, and are conceived through various pictorial elements such as detailed depiction and her composition of the picture plane that incorporates the presence of large blank spaces. In contrast, while engaging with the same subject matter, her pencil drawings distinct for their meticulously elaborate execution, illustrate a much harder and solid texture.
Since 2018, she is engaged in creating ceramic relief works, along with charcoal, pencil, and water color drawings that have developed a new frontier within her artistic practice.
