Yayoi Kusama is one of Japan’s foremost modern and contemporary artists, and it’s been a treat to witness her re-emergence over the past 15 years and her evolution into a global art star whose minimalist creative vision has resonated with so many art fans, collectors, and curators worldwide. Pictured here is one of her abstract, monochromatic “Infinity Nets” paintings.
This installation by legendary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is currently on view at the Mori Art Museum, at Roppongi Hills, in Tokyo, and it’s really a special treat – it’s an awesome, immersive experience in a large dark gallery. Kusama’s illuminated dot-pattern sculptures have an organic shape and are similar to a non-light series she created for Louis Vuitton stores worldwide in 2012 as as part of a global campaign. That work coincided with her major (and long overdue) retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum in New York City.
