To help boost the weak sales of Japanese nori manufacturer that was affected by the 2011 tsunami, I&S BBDO, a Japanese ad agency, developed a series of intricately laser-cut seaweed. Each sheet from “design nori” series – Sakura (Cherry Blossoms), Mizutama (Water Drops), Asanoha (Hemp), Kikkou (Turtle Seashell), and Kumikkou (Tortoise Shell) – is based on Japanese history or symbology and represents happiness, good fortune, and longevity.

Andrea Mastrovito was born in Bergamo in 1978 were he lives. Dividing his time between Italy and New York, his artistic path snakes through a kind of re-invention of painting where painting is no longer seen as the chromatic covering of a surface or as the simple act of painting but it becomes the constructive part of the artwork itself, disappearing behind the simple gesture like paper cutting (which replaces the brushstroke) which then re-emerge in his installations.
