Robocat lies testament to Japan's status as an expansive technological hub, playing on modern-day aesthetic constructions of robo-tech and artificial intelligence. Hiro Ando "modernises" the long-lived cultural icon of Japan's "Maneki Neko", almost as if giving it a playful mechanical upgrade.

  • +Artist Bio

    Acquiring his degree from the University of Art, Hiro Ando began his prolific career in 1995 in Tokyo, depicting its nighttime urban landscape. With a lot of inspiration, the streets proved to be an endless source of material for his narratives which often included the red fish in addition to the urban background. The act of the red fish in his paintings greatly reminds of the ancient Japanese watercolor paintings, thus making his work permeated with both a contemporary and traditional feeling. With his artistic beginnings tied to illustration, he would draw several sketches before actually working on the canvas, and his practice has since spread to video material, digital support, and sculpture.
