TOKOLO Asao

野老 朝雄

Artist
Asao Tokolo learned architecture since childhood, including an apprenticeship under Shin Egashira. Since September 11th, 2001, he has been creating patterns with the concept “to connect”. Many of his patterns are based on simple geometry, which can be reproduced using a compass and a ruler. His work is both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, crossing disciplines such as fine arts, design and architecture. His major works include the lower facade glass pattern for Dai Nagoya Building, emblems for The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the pattern for BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE bags and the Tower of Connect, which is a sculpture installed outside Otemachi Park Building. He is a lecturer at the University of Tokyo Faculty of Engineering and a part-time lecturer at the College of Arts and Sciences, The University of Tokyo.
