Painter, sculptor, filmmaker, and performer Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) is a famously provocative Japanese avant-garde artist, best known for her works featuring repeating motifs and psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, creation, destruction, and intense self-reflection. Kusama was born in Matsumoto City and began painting at the age of ten, as a means of escaping a childhood of neglect and expressing her early experiences with hallucinogenic visions. These apparitions consisted of dots and patterns enveloping her surroundings, suggesting issues of mental illness which have continued to strongly influence her work.
Kusama's pumpkin screenprints are hugely iconic and in increasing demand. 'Pumpkin 2000' is a fine example of the artist's pumpkin prints, published by the Serpentine Gallery in London in the year 2000. This particular print is sold in beautiful condition, unframed.
