This striking, high-quality handkerchief is from a design by artist Yayoi Kusama. It can also function as a work of art to be displayed in your home or office.

Kusama creates fantastical paintings using patterns of polka dots and nets as motifs. Her works span a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, film and immersive installation. Kusama was born in the Nagano Prefecture of Japan in 1929. She traveled to the United States in 1957 where she showed huge paintings, soft sculptures and environmental art employing mirrors and electric lights. In the late 1960’s, Kusama engaged in fashion designing and film production. Her original works and art “happenings” established her status as an avant-garde artist in New York and beyond. Kusama returned to Japan in 1973, and she continues to show works both in Japan and abroad. She is now one of world’s most prominent contemporary artists.
