Japanese Contemporary Artist Yayoi Kusama works primarily in sculpture and installation, but also works in painting, performance, film, fashion, poetry, fiction, and other arts. With over nine decades of her career, Kusama has made an international impression across the art world as 'the princess of polka dots'.
The mysteriously wonderful mind of Yayoi Kusama has been largely influenced by a sensory hallucination in her early childhood. In this hallucination, a field of flowers starting talking to her, transforming in to a landscape of endless dots which engulfed the artist. Kuysama has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric institution for much of her later life, where much of her work has been marked with obsessiveness and a desire to escape from psychological trauma.
