Squirc-tacular inspiration: Yayoi Kusama

Thanks to sponsors Sticky Business and Featherston’s Own Trust, we invite you to participate in making some squircular artwork inspired by Yayoi Kusama:
a Japanese avant-garde artist now in her 90’s, in her later career she has had a ‘dots obsession’. While she also creates dot paintings on canvas and board, one of her most well-loved installation works features a white room gradually becoming ‘obliterated’ by stickers given out to gallery visitors, who become participating artists in the process.
For some reason, we’ve been thinking a lot about squares and circles.. so come along and join in making some squarecircle sticker based artwork which will then be publicly exhibited in Feathy… Or you can just come along for some good music and good times..

Kusama's signature splash of dots has now arrived in the realm of fashion in a new collection from French luxury brand Louis Vuitton - bags, sunglasses, shoes and coats. The latest Kusama collection is showcased at its boutiques around the world, including New York, Paris, Tokyo and Singapore, sometimes with replica dolls of Kusama. (AP Photo/Itsuo Inouye)
