Spot on!

Spot on! The artist who lets children cover her white room with colourful stickers.

This is what happens when children are given thousands of coloured stickers and a totally white room all to themselves plus a free reign to express themselves.
Before the kids descended on this all white lounge the living room looked like a minimalist's dream pad. Afterwards barely a spec of white remained.

But this is no normal living room, this is the latest work of daring 82-year-old Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. And the finished product is just how she likes it.

In love with dots: Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama

She began to see the world through a screen of tiny dots when she was a small child. For her they covered everything she saw  the walls, ceilings and even her own body. She began creating paintings using dots in watercolour, oils and pastels when she was just ten years old.
