date National Gallery Singapore

One of the most famous, and most instagrammed, artists in the world lands in Singapore this month. Yayoi Kusama has been creating and dazzling the world with her fantastic worlds of polka dots, pumpkins and kaleidoscopes for decades: seventy years, to be precise. The 90 year-old has been painting and creating since the 1950s - and shows no signs of letting up. 

Catch her in Singapore if you can.  

From the museum: 
Yayoi Kusama is one of the world's most influential artists. Known for her iconic dots, nets, pumpkins and infinity rooms, her art has captivated millions all over the world.

National Gallery Singapore invites you to discover Kusama's expansive creative vision in the first major survey of her work held in Southeast Asia. Featuring over 120 works across media, YAYOI KUSAMA: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow 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.
