Artwork by #yayoikusama ? Yaşıl #Qutab is among the very few things I can eat in this meat dominating country. Vegetables are such luxuries here that I always feel guilty for the inconveniences I cause for others because of my diet, especially when traveling around. Despite this, however, I was asked by some local people from time to time: you are vegetarian? But I hear Chinese eat everything, even cats, dogs and insects!😳 #azerbaijancuisine #Azerbaijan

//EVERY GREAT MIND NEEDS A MUSE: Yayoi Kusama and Polka Dots// ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kusama has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric institution since 1977. In an attempt to share her experiences, she creates installations, paintings and sculptures that immerse the viewer in her obsessive vision of endless dots. At age 89, she never cease to draw, as the daily routine is both her compulsion and redemption. ------------------------------------------------ Every great mind needs a muse. K11 MUSEA explores the story of muse in its many form. @theartisanalmovement #K11MUSEA #DiscoverYourMuse #TheArtisanalMovement #Changemaker #kusama #yayoikusama #muse #icon #legend #style #Art #japan #japanese #colours #home #installations #contemporary #hallucinations #contemporaryart #inspiration #artinspiration #newera #polkadots #artlover #artagram #infinitymirrors #culture #dots #hkig #hongkongartmonth

//EVERY GREAT MIND NEEDS A MUSE: Yayoi Kusama and Polka Dots// “When I was drawing, the pattern would expand outside of the canvas to fill the floor and the wall. So when I looked far away, I would see a hallucination and I would get surrounded by that vision.” The image of polka dot is part of that vision, and in her own word, there are so many of them that she would feel panicked. ------------------------------------------------ Every great mind needs a muse.

//EVERY GREAT MIND NEEDS A MUSE: Yayoi Kusama and Polka Dots// ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yayoi Kusama is the artist who filled up her world with brightly painted dots. Suffering from hallucinations and obsessive thoughts since she was a child, her work has been marked with obsessiveness and a desire to escape from psychological trauma. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ------------------------------------------------ Every great mind needs a muse.

Show and tell — a couple of things: I am excited about the April 2019 issue of AD. Reason? Its story about the London pied-à-terre of Laura Sartori Rimini, one half of Studio Peregalli, the transcendent (yes - I lie not!) Milan decoration firm known world-wide for its delightfully rarefied but exuberant rooms, in which colour, texture, fantasy, vitality, historicism, maximalism and uniquely perfect taste are the key components. @miguelfloresvianna took the beautiful photographs. A couple of books on the Bloomsbury Group. Perhaps you didn’t know that many of its talented and outrageously high-minded members — Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Lytton Strachey, Leonard Woolf — had close and, in some cases, longstanding family ties to India and Ceylon, and in particular Calcutta (Kolkata). The Vogue is old but it may as well be new as some of the photography is so fresh. (This April 1966 green-dream cover was shot by Irving Penn.) As for the white muscari, don’t go nuts. You buy ‘em and you plunk ‘em, on any ol’ table. And, finally, regarding the watcher at bottom right, she told me the giant chrysanthemums remind her of that bewitching photograph of Yayoi Kusama, when a child. #whitemuscari #BloomsburyGroup #YayoiKusama #VanessaBell #ArchitecturalDigest #MiguelFloresVianna

Happy Birthday @yayoikusama_ !!! May your anger and bravery to persist rub off onto the rest of us so that we may make work for 70 plus years 👏👏👏👏👏 we know the odds are against us, but you have lit the way and we’re so thankful for the beauty and vision you have brought into this incredible world we inhabit. Kusama is known for her “madness” and her being institutionalized, that this is what built her lexicon of psychedelic and bold installations.... but when you come to discover how many times her work was copied for many years by male artists of her generation, and how this sent her into suicidal states, you begin to to wonder why and how artists become recognized for their “genius” Those other plagiarists were recognized as such fat before her. #andywarhol #claesoldenburg #lucassamaras #yayoikusama
