ARTISTS - Artist of the day : Yayoi Kusama



Yayoi Kusama, born March 22, 1929 in Matsumoto, is a contemporary Japanese avant-garde artist, painter, sculptor and writer. Considered a predecessor to pop art, she uses repetitive patterns, mainly polka dots. She explains her use of polka dots and repetition as a way to explore infinity and her obsession with denying her "self", as in her immersive installations Infinity Mirror Room (1965) and Fireflies on the Water (2002).


We can make a parallel with artist Claude Viallat from Nîmes for his well known repetitive technique "of the sponge" we have the pleasure and the honor to count him among our artists present at Artothèque Sud Nîmes with some of his works.



Claude Viallat, born in Nîmes in 1936, is a contemporary French painter. He studied at École des Beaux-Arts of Montpellier from 1955 to 1959, then at École des Beaux-Arts of Paris in 1962-63, in Raymond Legueult's Studio. In 1966, Claude Viallat adopted a process based on prints, which placed him in a radical critique of lyrical and geometric abstraction (in the technique known as "all-over"). A neutral form, neither natural nor geometric, is repeated on a free canvas, without a frame, determining composition of work. In 1969, he was a founding member of the group Support/Surfaces.

Here are some of his most remarkable works.
