  3. Celebrating Yayoi Kusama

    "My art originates from hallucinations only I can see. I translate the hallucinations and obsessional images that plague me into sculptures and paintings." - Yayoi Kusama

    A famously provocative avant-garde artist, Yayoi Kusama is best known for her works featuring psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, and intense self-reflection.

    After representing Japan at the Venice Biennale in 1993, Kusama’s work received newly heightened recognition from the international art world and in 2008, Kusama became the best-selling living female artist, with works breaking record prices at auction.

    Today marks her 85th Birthday, let’s celebrate this unique and visionary artist!

  4. Yayoi Kusama is best known for her works featuring repeating motifs and psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, creation, destruction, and intense self-reflection. She described her famed Infinity Nets series [pictured] as patterns "without beginning, end, or center. The entire canvas would be occupied by a monochromatic net. This endless repetition caused a kind of dizzy, empty, hypnotic feeling."

  16. Happy Birthday Yayoi

    "…a polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement… Polka dots are a way to infinity." -Yayoi Kusama

Born in Matsumoto City, the famously provocative avant-garde artist is best known for her works featuring psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, and intense self-reflection.
