Yayoi Kunama is a Japanese artist and writer who works with a wide variety of media within her work. She has used medium such as painting, performance art, collage, scat sculpture and environmental installations within her work. That usually exhibits ‘thematic interest in psychedelic colours, repetition and pattern’.(read more about her at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yayoi_Kusama http://www.victoria-miro.com/artists/31-yayoi-kusama/ )

On the 29th of July 2016 I decide to attend Yayoi Kunama exhibition at the Victoria Miro Gallery. It was free admission and I was very excited because I have always been intrigued with Yayoi Kunama’s art of fabulous patterns and colours that create a surreal illusion. Because of my hectic schedule I attended the exhibition before work. I was welcomed by a massive queue and waited an hour and half to get into the Victoria Miro Gallery. This showed how popular her work is and I was even more excited to view it all.
