Yayoi Kusama is one of the world's most influential artists. Known for her iconic dots, nets, pumpkins and infinity rooms, her incredibly Instagramable art has captivated millions all over the world.
If you're in Singapore sometime over the summer, you might want to check out her new exhibition at the National Gallery Singapore. Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow,which opens June 9th and runs until September 3, is the first major survey of her work in Southeast Asia.
Featuring over 120 pieces across various mediums, it offers an unprecedented opportunity to explore an extraordinary artistic journey across seven decades.
Beginning with paintings from the 1950s, the exhibition traces the development of her key motifs and exploration of colour, form and space. Along the way, it highlights her forays into sculpture, collage, performance and video, before culminating in a series of spectacular installations and large-scale paintings that transform our galleries and public spaces.
