Yayoi Kusama Art
The princess of polka dots, Yayoi Kusama is one of the most influential female artists of our generation and we can't express how thrilled (yeeeee!) we are to have her as part of the Third Drawer Down family! Yayoi Kusama's art is one of a kind and tells her story in the form of paintings, installations, sculptures and performances.
Pumpkins and polka dots
Born in 1929, the Japanese artist moved to New York City in the United States against the will of her family in 1958, where she played a major part in the avant-garde and pop-art movement. She is best known for her use of polka dots in her diverse art pieces, especially in her more recent "Infinity Mirror Rooms" installations which use mirrors to reflect Yayoi Kusama art.
Her fascination with pumpkins has also provided for some beautiful pumpkin artworks! Yayoi artwork based on pumpkins represents the positive images of her troubled childhood, symbolising tranquillity, comfort and humbleness. If you're lucky enough, you might even be able to catch some of Yayoi Kusama's latest exhibitions on display depending on where you are located!
90 years young and going strong!
There is no slowing down for Yayoi Kusama! Hitting the 90 milestone hasn't stopped her from making more artistic statements, with exhibitions popping up all over the world. Yayoi Kusama art explores sexuality, freedom and perception of her own life and has become a major influence in the art community, inspiring names such as Andy Warhol.
