Kusama Yayoi Exhibit Osaka

Yayoi Kusama草間弥生展覧会大阪

The National Museum of Art, Osaka, is now showing works by quirky artist Kusama Yayoi.

The show is entitled "Eternity of Eternal Eternity," and displays the most recent works of Kusama Yayoi. It runs through April 8.

Kusama began painting in her teens, spent more than a decade in New York, and now apparently lives in an insane asylum from which she walks every day to her studio. After painting for a day, she returns to the institution.

Her work is heavy on polka-dots and is playful and funny.

The National Museum of Art, Osaka, is close to Nakanoshima in central Osaka.
