Our art topic in Year 10 is natural forms. The students are studying the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
The class members researched her background growing up in Japan. We saw how a constant theme in her work is the use of polkadots. Kusama has explained that these are very therapeutic for her own well-being.
Our own artwork started with a title page being designed. We used photos of Kusama’s work as the inspiration. Bright colours were added to create an engaging design.
We are hopeful of visiting the Tate Modern later in the year to experience a Kusama exhibition that is coming to London.
