Art Therapy by Jacob x Kusama

 If you are living in London then you probably know that there is a varied and spectacular exhibition of a famous artist Yayoi Kusama in Tate Modern. The most interesting fact is that this exhibition is sponsored by Louis Vuitton which let's agree isn't a common thing. The reason for that is a joint work of Marc Jacobs and Kusama.

Shots of limited collection of Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama are now available. As expected, the bags are decorated with dots, which is a hallmark of Japanese artist. The collection will be available on sale in July 2012.

82-year-old artist uses in her work elements of different styles of feminism, minimalism, surrealism, Brut, pop art and abstract expressionism. Currently, Yayoi is living in a psychiatric hospital of Tokyo, and there she continues to create works of art.

After the work of Yayoi Kusama called "Abstraction number 2"  owned at one time an American minimalist artist Donald Judd in 1959, was sold at Christie's auction for 5, 794, 500 dollars, she became one of the most expensive contemporary artists.
