Yayoi Kusama @ Singapore National Gallery

Time flies!...

OMG It's the last week for the famous Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama's exhibit at the Singapore National Gallery. :(

I had been there already, when I had family visiting, but meant to go back to enjoy the amazing art again.

Not like I get any commission from the gallery ticket sales, but just putting my 2 cents out there:
- Go see it!:
If you haven't gone already, it's really worth it. There's such an interesting mix of her vivid art on canvases, sculptures, video installations, and really cool interactive light exhibits.
- Go early!:
Seeing the crowds when I was there though, I would recommend going first thing in the morning, and be mentally prepared for more than the usual crowds anyway because of the long weekend.
(Best of luck... and may the odds ever be in your favour)
