ARTBURO has recently unveiled an extraordinary creation that stands out not only for its functionality but also for its artistic flair: a hand-painted Bugaboo Twin Donkey stroller. This unique stroller is a masterpiece in its own right, featuring intricate designs and vivid colors that immediately capture the eye. The artwork adorning the stroller is inspired by Yayoi Kusama's renowned 1994 piece, "Yellow Trees," celebrated for its mesmerizing patterns and vibrant hues. Yayoi Kusama, a celebrated Japanese contemporary artist, has long been recognized for her fascination with repetitive patterns and bold colors, often drawing inspiration from elements of nature. "Yellow Trees" epitomizes her signature style, featuring an array of undulating tree forms rendered in striking yellow tones against a contrasting background. The artwork is both hypnotic and invigorating, evoking a sense of wonder and delight. In translating Kusama's "Yellow Trees" onto the Bugaboo Twin Donkey stroller, ARTBURO has achieved a remarkable feat. Each detail, from the swirling branches to the delicate leaves, has been meticulously hand-painted, capturing and celebrating the essence of Kusama's vision. Designed to accommodate twins, the stroller offers ample space and comfort for both children, while its artistic embellishments make it a statement piece sure to turn heads. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the hand-painted stroller is a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication of the artists at ARTBURO. The process of hand-painting such a detailed and intricate design onto a functional item like a stroller requires not only artistic skill but also precision and patience. The result is a harmonious blend of art and practicality, where form meets function in the most delightful way. This collaboration between ARTBURO and the spirit of Yayoi Kusama's work is more than just a tribute; it is an embodiment of the idea that art can be seamlessly integrated into everyday life, making ordinary objects extraordinary. The Bugaboo Twin Donkey stroller, with its "Yellow Trees" motif, stands as a beacon of creativity and innovation, inviting parents to embrace the beauty of art while tending to their children's needs. In conclusion, ARTBURO's hand-painted Bugaboo Twin Donkey stroller is a celebration of artistic ingenuity and craftsmanship. Inspired by Yayoi Kusama's iconic "Yellow Trees," the stroller is not only a functional piece designed for the convenience of parents with twins but also a work of art that brings joy and inspiration to all who encounter it. With its intricate details and vibrant colors, this stroller is a true testament to the power of art in transforming the mundane into the magnificent.

The Bugaboo is a state-of-the-art stroller. The Donkey model pictured here even has a sidecar for carrying your groceries and transforms into a double child-carrier.

This brand has been nicknamed the “sports car of the stroller world”. Gwyneth Paltrow, Gwen Stefani, Kate Hudson, Hilary Duff, Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller and Elton John all have one. They even used a Bugaboo for a few shots in Sex and the City.

Its only downsides are that it does not fit in the boot of any standard car, or onto a bus, and it takes an engineering degree to work out how to fold the thing. Want to know why? The Bugaboo was originally designed as engineer Max Barenbrug’s graduation project in 1994. He designed it for men, not for women or children. He said he saw too many dads struggling with strollers covered in “stupid colours” that were not functional, so he designed a stroller that was all about function and mobility.

He made a prototype to be used by men for everything from running on the beach, to getting up and down stairs, to packing it into a tiny car boot. Manufacturers hated the idea, and he was forced to redesign it to look “flashier” and meet the required safety standards.

From Bugaboo’s launch in 1999, it was a must-have item for celebrities and other parents with money. 

Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto, Japan in 1929. She lives and works in Tokyo.

In the 1960s, Beatrice Perry's Gres Gallery played an important role in establishing Kusama's career in the United States. Ota Fine Arts, Kusama's longtime Tokyo dealer, has worked with the artist since the 1980s. Kusama left Gagosian Gallery in late 2012; before moving to Gagosian, she had been with Robert Miller Gallery, New York.Kusama has been represented by Victoria Miro Gallery since the early 2000s, and joined David Zwirner in 2013. The artist is currently represented by David Zwirner, Ota Fine Arts, and Victoria Miro Gallery.

Kusama's work has performed strongly at auction: top prices for her work are for paintings from the late 1950s and early 1960s. As of 2012, her work has the highest turnover of any living woman artist.In November 2008, Christie's New York sold a 1959 white "Infinity Net" painting formerly owned by Donald Judd,No. 2, for US$5.1 million, then a record for a living female artist. In comparison, the highest price for a sculpture from her New York years is £72,500 (US$147,687), fetched by the 1965 wool, pasta, paint and hanger assemblage Golden Macaroni Jacket at Sotheby's London in October 2007. A 2006 acrylic on fiberglass-reinforced plastic pumpkin earned $264,000, the top price for one of her sculptures, also at Sotheby's in 2007Her 'Flame of Life - Dedicated to Tu-Fu (Du-Fu)' sold for US$960,000 at Art Basel/Hong Kong in May 2013, the highest price paid at the show. Kusama became the most expensive living female artist at auction when White No. 28 (1960) from her signature “Infinity Nets” series sold for $7.1 million at a 2014 Christie's auction.
