How to Draw a Yayoi Kusama Flower

Artists 8+ Can Make This Cool Art!


About the Artist: Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese contemporary artist who works primarily in sculpture and installation, but she also makes paintings and even does other kinds of art in performance, film, fashion, poetry, fiction, and more. She uses super bold patterns in her sculptures. In the drawing we'll be doing today, we're using her inspiration with polka dots. If you're interested in seeing one of her big rooms you can check out this list of her live exhibits.


Have you heard of Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Rooms? They're huge installations that take up an ENTIRE room! When Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Room was at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Lily did a Vlog of her visit that you might want to check out to see some more awesome Yayoi Kusama art.

Anyway, back to our project... drawing Yayoi Kusama inspired flowers with colored pencils!
