As a legend in contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama has been acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan. The exhibition of Yayoi Kusama X Botanic Garden of New York (NYBG), titled as Cosmic Nature, “reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery.” (cited from the official website of NYBG) The ingenious marriage of Kusama’s installations at NYBG with fashion art leads to our fashion photography works.
