Artist: Yayoi Kusama

Innovative artist ,Yayoi Kusama, currently has a show: "Look Now, See Forever" at the Gallery of Modern Art near Brisbane.   

"‘Look Now, See Forever’ transforms the dramatic spaces of the Gallery of Modern Art with a series of spectacular immersive rooms, featuring new sculptures and paintings as well as film projection and installation." -Gallery of Modern Art

Her work is colorful, vibrant, playful, and just brings a smile to your face.  Particularly amazing is Kusama's interactive "World of Dots".  An entire room is painted completely white and then children are invited throughout the exhibition to "obliterate" the room with the application of colorful dots all over every surface.

Also fantastic:

And it's important to remember that these are installations, so you can walk in or around what's in these images.  Awesome.

  1. Those are just so fun looking - I bet they are fantastic to experience as installations.

  2. I bet that would be so fun to splash that white room with paint!
