Painter, sculptor, filmmaker, and performer Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) is a famously provocative Japanese avant-garde artist, best known for her works featuring repeating motifs and psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, creation, destruction, and intense self-reflection. Kusama was born in Matsumoto City and began painting at the age of ten, as a means of escaping a childhood of neglect and expressing her early experiences with hallucinogenic visions. These apparitions consisted of dots and patterns enveloping her surroundings, suggesting issues of mental illness which have continued to strongly influence her work. Fruits (1997) is a rare screenprint by Kusama. This print, which is sold in excellent condition and guaranteed authenticity, features some of her most iconic motifs: her infinity net pattern, a pumpkin, fruit, and polka dots. It is a print that has become particularly sought after and rarely comes up for sale. It is signed, titled, dated and numbered by the artist on the lower border. Please contact the gallery with any questions.
