Yayoi Kusama was born on March 22, 1929, Matsumoto, Japan. Yayoi Kusama is an iconic Japanese artist who was a self-described “obsessional artist.” She employed painting, sculpture, performance art, and installations in a variety of styles, including Pop art and Minimalism.
She has described in her art that yellow is her favorite color. Hence, it is not difficult to identify many of her artworks featured her favorite color, Yellow. Her works on Yellow Pumpkin, like the Infinity Net, became a kind of alter ego for her. She has since completed major outdoor sculptural commissions, mostly in the form of brightly hued, monstrous plants and flowers.
Yayoi Kusama art is also evident in her fashion collaboration with Louis-Vutton, France on their bags which were probably one of the fastest world best sellers ever happen.
In 2017, Singaporeans and worldwide visitors to Singapore will have a chance to visit Yayoi Kusama Singapore 2017 exhibition at the National Gallery Singapore featuring close to 200 pieces of her exhibits.
