Statement
Peace Art

The base of Takuji Ando s concept of (Peace Art) revolves around using positive energy to allow ourselves to regain empathy for one another, and move humanity towards a greater unity.

One of Takuji s characters , Mea – A – Chan, is a spirit who appears in his paintings playfully smiling, bringing life to whatever it crosses. Mea – A – Chan was born under the healthy sun of Okinawa and grew to his state of happyness and power by emersing himself (or herself) in nature, which allowed him access to the deeper understanding.

The Second World War undeniably left cruel scars all over his home, but now the island has began to listen to itself again, and smile. Mea – A – Chan can at will access the sound of the Sanshin, a traditional Okinawan instrument which sews bliss amongst those lucky enough to get drawn into its natural riffs.

The “Kawaii” (cute) style of Mea – A Chan, is balanced with both more traditional Japanese painting techniques merged with an element of modern western flavour. Thus providing an exhibition which displays the world as is in 2014. Ando’s art shows that as we mix and accept change we learn and grow towards a harmonious unity, as long as we don’t stray too far from what grants us life in the first place.
