While Kitaoji Rosanjin can be arguably called the most eccentric figure in Japanese art world in 20 century, Ando Minoru (1927-2015), 安藤實 is another name that comes to a mind. A painter, ceramist and calligrapher, he is widely recognized in Japan but almost unknown in the West.

Ando Minoru held his first painting exhibition at the Kokugakai of Ryuzaburo Umehara in 1957. In 1965, he worked under the guidance of Sakuzo Hineno, a well-known ceramist in Kyoto.
In 1967, Ando Minoru published a collection of Mino ancient ceramic patterns, first and second editions.
He opened a kiln at Mino Kannon Cave (Jorinji Temple, Toki City) working as a potter, painter and calligrapher.
His first ceramic exhibition was held in 1975 at Ashiya Gallery. In 1976 he held exhibitions in Nagoya and Tokyo department stores and became a member of Oriental Ceramics Society.
Since 1977, Ando Minoru worked with Kumagai Morikazu who painted his ceramics.
In 1994, he was invited to make the interior design for Mandarin Hotel in Singapore.
