Meiko Ando (b. Tokyo, Japan) is a printmaker and dancer/choreographer based in Toronto. Meiko was an artist-in residence for the internationally recognized artist group Boreal Art/Nature in Quebec. She was a recipient of Arts Toronto Protégé Honors in Toronto (1999). Publications of her work include “Woman Critiqued” (Univ. of Hawaii Press, 2006) and “Bad Girls of Japan” (Palgrave Macmillan, NYC, 2005). Meiko’s prints emerged as a result of her dance performances and they are dreamlike, in the sense that they’re about the unknown that exists but invisible to our eyes.
