Have you heard Yayoi Kusama? She’s a Japanese artist that is also known as the “Queen of Polka Dots”. She uses psychedelic colors, signature dots, provocative performance art pieces. She is also well known for infinity rooms that diverse you on a different dimension. (OA, but yes. Ganon ang feeling. Lols.) Recently, she had her own exhibition in Singapore and luckily I experienced it and I am here to convince you to see it also by yourself.
The exhibit happened at Singapore National Gallery from June 3-September 3, and it was a blockbuster exhibition. Lines are long in ticketing, especially during weekends. Cost is quite pricey (if you convert in PHP so don’t convert it). But believe me, it is all worth it. Well aside from Singapore, Yayoi Kusama also had an exhibition at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington and made the most popular in museum history.
Now if you are heading to Japan, do include this in your bucketlist! She recently opened her exhibit and a three-story museum in Tokyo, Japan, and named Yayoi Kusama Museum and will run until February 25, 2018. For more information about booking check out Yayoi Kusama‘s website. This will surely give you unique and a very IG worthy experience. ❤️
The gallery stairs are full of dots.

Not just the kids will enjoy but also the oldies.
A room wherein you will be given colorful dot stickers and you will just stick it around the room. Look at that collaborative art. A room for kids and kid at heart.
