Masako Ando was born in Aichi Prefecture in 1976. In 2001 she graduated from Aichi University of the Arts’ Graduate School of Oil Painting Department. While at university, she studied painting under Nobuya Hitsuda whose practice has influenced many artists, and now she continues to live and work based in the verdant setting of Seto city in Aichi Prefecture. Because of the extremely time-consuming techniques behind her art she works at a pace of several new pieces per year, and we hold her third solo show next Jan- Feb, following on from one in 2004 at Tomio Koyama Gallery, as well as “Hara Documents 9 Masako Ando: The Garden of Belly Button” (Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, 2012).
