Miya Ando is a metal-finishing artist who creates layered finishes on steel with a process she invented, utilizing fire, acid and automotive lacquer. Can you say badass? She will be showing large-scale steel works for the first time, the show is entitled Shinobu [perserverance] on October 7 at de Castellane Gallery. Her show will be comprised of large scale steel wall works and her series of hot-rolled steel skateboards, monotypes created by skateboarding on liquid graphite-coated paper. Saying this chick is hardcore would be an understatement.
