Lot Details

"Pandasan (Blue Klein Panda)" is a dynamic "velvet" covered resin sculpture by Japanese Pop artist, Hiro Ando, that is an homage to Yves Klein's famous patented color blue (YKB). This work is from an edition of 8, measures 21.62 inches (55 cm) in height, is in excellent condition and is issued with protective plexiglass box that measures 23.62 x 21.62 x 17.72 inches (59.99 x 54.91 x 45 cm). The art of Hiro Ando can be considered the meeting between the Meiji era and the Manga generation: Shogun in the land of Pokemon. Ando's sculptures conflate traditional Japanese figures like "Hello Kitty", the Panda, The Samurai and the Sumo Wrestler, creating a dialogue between the traditional past and present cultures, between East and West.
