OK if you have not heard of Yayoi Kusama you will now. She is a Japanese artist and writer. She is pretty amazing and is know for her paintings, sculpture, performance and environmental installations. She influenced artists like Andy Warhol and she is one of the most important artists out of Japan. She is famous for her Body Festivals in which naked participants were painted with brightly coloured Polka dots.
Anyway moving swiftly on to 2012 she has collaborated Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton and its all about Dots.....check out the website:
anyway the windows of Selfridges pays homage to this collaboration as you can see the windows have gone Dot crazy!! but I love it..........the life scale model of Yayoi is so life like that having my photo taken outside the window I felt she was actually there watching me!!!!
