Many of us let our creativity out in multiple outlets. Why confine yourself to just one medium when there are so many to be explored. I often find myself drawn to designers/artists that are not afraid to try different things. Ultimately for us any painting, drawing or sculpture could become the basis for a fabric design. For me, one such artist is Yayoi Kusama.
Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese multimedia artist that got her start in New York in the 1960’s. Kusama has worked in many different mediums over her 86 years creating art. While in New York she became well known as a fabric and clothing designer; with her own boutique and hosting pop-up Happenings, she was the talk of the town. In 2012 Kusama came back into the United States visual sphere as part of a collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Before the year was out everything Louis Vuitton was covered in Kusama’s signature polka dots.
