Down the Rabbit Hole in Colorful Dots, Twisted Typography: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: The Art of Yayoi Kusama

Click on the image above to link to our catalog

Yayoi Kusama is Japan’s most celebrated contemporary artist, and she brings us a new and a captivating take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Kusama sees colorful spots on everything she looks at due to a rare eye condition she has had since she was a child. For most of us it would be a hindrance but Kusama has used it to her advantage by creating bright and vibrant hallucinogenic art.

Now you can read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrated with Kusama’s illustrations. It certainly is a different way to read Alice but a wonderful crazy one.
