Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama 草間 彌生
Born on 22 March 1929 in Matsumoto
An art-world phenomenon
And the most diversified artist
Tackling sculpture and painting
Film and fashion
Poetry and installation

When she was a little girl
She had the hallucination of a field of flowers
Which started talking to her
Their heads were like dots going on as far as she could see
While she was disappearing into the field…
Yayoi Kusama 草間 彌生
'The princess of polka dots'
