About

Yayoi Kusama An iconic, vibrantly colored pop art piece - this small Kusama pumpkin sculpture features the universal polka dot patterns and bold colors for which the artist is perhaps best known.

She continues to churn out paintings and installations at inspiring speed, exhibiting internationally in nearly every corner of the globe, and maintains a commanding presence on the primary market and at auction." (source: Phillips) “The polka dot,” the artist wrote in 1978, “has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing, polka-dots become movement. . .polka dots are a way to infinity...”
