Multimedia artist Yayoi Kusama is keeping up a torrid pace at 90 — backing up sold-out exhibits at museums around the world with fresh works, more shows and even a balloon designed for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City.

Kusama’s balloon, “Love Flies Up to the Sky,” is a round character that looks like a cross between a sun and a starfish. Featuring 300 of the artist’s signature hand-painted dots, it will soar 34 feet (10.3 meters) tall and stretch about 30 feet wide, according to Macy’s.
