Yayoi Kusama

What happens when you give a bunch of children brightly coloured stickers and put them in a white room? This:

Yayoi Kusama, arguably one of the world’s best, and certainly most enduring artists, created the Obliteration Room as part of her Look now, See Forever exhibition, currently showing in the Tate Modern, London. The 83-year-old Japanese-born expressionist, famed for her ability to reinvent her own unique style, was present throughout the rise of pop art, surrealism and the hippie counter culture, which saw the development of her trademark vibrant polka dots.

Having exhibited alongside the likes of Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg and George Segal, Kusama is rightly considered part of art royalty with her exhibitions selling out worlwide. With Obliteration Room, Kusama created a large domestic enviroment which served as a blank canvas for her little volunteers. Take a look at the video to see what happened.
