Beloved of art tastemakers, the fashion world, and casual museum Instagrammers, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is now a universal figure of inspiration and intrigue.
In a new video series, Eyes on Fire, senior curator of global arts at the Guggenheim Museum, Alexandra Munroe, talks about reintroducing the cult artist—who was admired by New York City art insiders like Andy Warhol—to Western audiences in 1989.
In this clip, exclusive to ELLE.com, Munroe talks about Kusama's signature work with public spaces, including a 2012 collaboration between the artist and Louis Vuitton that reimagined the fashion label's New York City store facade.
Eyes on Fire will debut in late 2016.
Finally. It’s all happening. Hair art is here, and now we’re questioning everything we thought we knew about our own hair.
Japanese stylist, Ryoji Imaizumi, has been called a “hair magician” and it’s not because he can pull a rabbit out of his hat. His hair designs are the haute couture of the salon world, and his designs are mesmerizing everyone, thanks to his Instagram. Imaizumi uses intricate designs, props and unusual colors to make magic out of hair.

Meet Miranda Makaroff: she's a visual artist with sick personal style, as well as a DJ, actor and designer. Currently based in Madrid, Miranda makes hyper-colourful paintings and sculptures that we really dig, while her cute/kitsch outfits are like Alessandro Michele's Gucci IRL.
