Win! Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, illustrated by Yayoi Kusama
Yayoi Kusama is one of Japan’s most celebrated artists. In 2008 Christie’s New York sold one of her highly prized ‘Infinity Net’ works for $5.1m at auction – a record for a living female artist.
At 83, she has had a career in which she has continuously innovated and re-invented her style. Surfaces covered in polka dots have become her trademark, something she attributes to the hallucinations that have afflicted her since childhood.
To coincide with a major retrospective of Kusama’ work at the Tate Modern, Penguin Classics is publishing Lewis Carroll’s beloved classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland interspersed with Kusama’s fantastic illustrations.
We are offering Big Issue readers the chance to have their own little bit of Kusama’s art as we have ten copies of the surreal, almost hallucinogenic book to give away. To be in with a chance of winning just answer this question:
In which Japanese city was Yayoi Kusama born?
