Yayoi Kusama Pumpkin

I discovered Yayoi Kusama when I first visited Matsumoto, her hometown. We had to kill some extra time and we walked by museum, we entered and it was full of Yayoi Kusama’s art. It was pretty impressive-shocking, her art is very original-unique. Later I knew about her when AU KDDI launched their Iida phones designed by Yayoi Kusama.

Two weeks ago I visited Naoshima, an amazing island full of interesting architecture-art-museums. In Naoshima there is also one piece of art made by Yayoi Kusama, my favorite one. It is a big yellow super-saturated pumpkin placed in a beach, awesome! They could put this in the LOST island and it would make “sense” 🙂
