Artnet Asks: Artist Miya Ando on Growing Up and Working Hard

[Originally posted September 23rd, 2015

The work of New York-based artist Miya Ando has been guided by strong family relationships, a deep connection to nature, and time spent living in a Buddhist temple. From a young age her parents encouraged her to make art, and Ando eventually began working with aluminum and steel, which have become her signature materials. The artist maintains a rigid work schedule, and can be found in her Long Island City studio seven days a week. Covering the walls from floor to ceiling are large metallic works, many of which will be featured by Sundaram Tagore Gallery in her upcoming show, Sora/Ku (Sky/Emptiness), first opening in Hong Kong on September 23.
