  • About the work

Offset Lithograph.
Unframed. Open edition.

Kusama declared “My life is a dot lost among thousands of other dots”. She has created a universe made of psychedelic compositions inspired by her own hallucinations, and recognizable at first sight. She has been exhibited internationally for 50 years, alongside Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and Jasper Johns. After the great success of Kusama’s retrospective exhibition in 2011 at the Pompidou Centre, Louis Vuitton paid tribute to her work by creating an entire collection based on her dot motifs.


About the Artist

1929 Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, Japan

Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese contemporary artist who works primarily in sculpture and installation, but is also active in painting, performance, film, fashion, poetry, fiction, and other arts. Her work is based in conceptual art and shows some attributes of feminism, minimalism, surrealism, Art Brut, pop art, and abstract expressionism, and is infused with autobiographical, psychological, and sexual content. She has been acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan.

Kusama was raised in Matsumoto, and trained at the Kyoto School of Arts and Crafts in a traditional Japanese painting style called nihonga. Kusama was inspired, however, by American Abstract impressionism. She moved to New York City in 1958 and was a part of the New York avant-garde scene throughout the 1960s, especially in the pop-art movement. Embracing the rise of the hippie counterculture of the late 1960s, she came to public attention when she organized a series of happenings in which naked participants were painted with brightly colored polka dots. Since the 1970s, Kusama has continued to create art, most notably installations in various museums around the world.
