In the March issue, we talked about a Japanese artist named Yayoi Kusama. This artist is known for her fascination with polka dots. I had a chance to see her wildly-popular exhibit called Infinity Mirrors at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.
Here I am in one of the art exhibits called The Obliteration Room. In this room, visitors are allowed to put stickers on the plain white walls and furniture. As more and more visitors put the dot stickers on every surface they can find, the white room disappears and is “obliterated”.
You can make your own Yayoi-inspired art at home! Make a diorama scene in a shoebox and paint everything white. Then add your own dots! Check out our sample here.
If you make some dotty art this long weekend, please share a photo with us!
Have a great day,
