Ichiro Endo

Artist Information

Ichiro Endo was born in Shizuoka, Japan. He travels across the country in his car named the “Mirai-e-go” (GO FOR FUTURE vehicle) on which he encourages people to write down their hopes and dreams. In addition to painting, performance, and video work, his activities include being a musician, DJ, and designer. Recent exhibitions include For Love, Peace and the Future (2010) at Art Tower Mito, Japan, TWIST and SHOUT: Contemporary Art from Japan (2009) at BACC, Bangkok, and Mixed Bathing World: Beppu Contemporary Art Festival (2009) in Oita, Japan. Following the March 11 earthquake/tsunami, the artist has begun organizing projects in the disaster-stricken Tohoku region, including the Yappeshi Festival and the GO FOR FUTURE Bus project in which he transports people between Yokohama, Shibuya, and the cities of Ishinomaki and Ofunato.
