Enter the fantastical world of Yayoi Kusama

An exhibition featuring the works of one of the leading artists of our time has opened in Singapore – and you can take a piece of her work home with you, after the show.

At 88-years-old, Yayoi Kusama is seen as the most important living artist to come out of Japan. A leading voice of the avant-garde, her works are largely conceptual and display attributes of feminism, surrealism, Art Brut, pop art and abstract expressionism. They are easily identifiable by their psychedelic colours, repetition and pattern, and her trademark polka dots and net, pumpkins, and infinity mirror rooms have become part of pop culture.

Yayoi inspires a kind of fan mania that’s rare for today’s contemporary art scene, and with National Gallery having just opened the first major exhibition of her work in Southeast Asia, well, you can expect some real buzz!

Featuring over 120 works across a variety of media, YAYOI KUSAMA: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow invites visitors to explore an extraordinary artistic journey across seven decades.

In conjunction with this significant exhibition, Gallery & Co. have received the rights to release an extensive range of products featuring Yayoi’s artworks. Some of these are exclusive to Gallery & Co. and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
