Born 22 March 1929. Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese writer and artist.Kusama is regarded as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan and an important voice of the avant-garde. Throughout her career she has worked with a vareity of mediums including painting, collage, sculpture, performance art and environmental installations, most of which exhibit her interest in psychedelic colours,repition and pattern.
I love the craziness of her work. When looking at her work I can tell she had lots of fun in the process.
Recently she collaborated with Louis Vuitton and successfully brought a well needed injection of dot filled playfulness.
Why I love her work...
