In the March issue, we introduced you to an artist named Yayoi Kusama from Japan. She loves making art with POLKA DOTS!
The Queensland Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia is currently putting on an art show called “Look Now, See Forever” by the famous artist. In the show, there is a special art piece called “The Obliteration Room”. Back in November, Yayoi asked gallery visitors to help her finish off the cool art piece. See how below!
First, Yayoi painted a room completely white.
Then for two weeks, gallery visitors came and stuck coloured dot stickers EVERYWHERE! And we mean everywhere…
And now the room looks like this!
WOW WEE! The word obliteration (say: uh-blit-uh-REY-shun) means to wipe something out completely. As you can see in this art piece, coloured dot stickers completely “wiped out” the white room!
Check out page 9 of chickaDEE’s March issue for instructions on how to make your own Yayoi Kusama-inspired art. Or click on this link HERE to make your own polka dot room on your computer. If you’re in Brisbane, you can check out the art exhibition until March 11.
Have a great weekend,
