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 iconic and in huge demand. Pumpkin ST from 2001 is a fine example of the pumpkin prints. This particular print is sold in excellent condition and framed to full conservation standards.
