Well known for her use of polka dots and her thematic interest in psychedelic colors in environmental installations, the artworks by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (草間 彌生 or 弥生, Kusama Yayoi) is hard to miss. Although she is well in her 80s (b. 1929), her work has a child-like curiosity which is like no other.

These larger-than-life flowers bear more resemblance to one which could be found on video games like Mario Brothers than reality, but it is precisely their magical qualities which made them so appealing to the masses. It is thus no wonder that Kusama’s work has consistently performed strongly in the art market world wide and is considered one of the most important living artists today.

# Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama (草間 彌生 or 弥生 Kusama Yayoi, born March 22, 1929) is a Japanese artist and writer. Throughout her career she has worked in a wide variety of media, including painting, collage, sculpture, performance art and environmental installations, most of which exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. A precursor of the pop art, minimalist and feminist art movements, Kusama influenced contemporaries such as Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg. Although largely forgotten after departing the New York art scene in the early 1970s, Kusama is now acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan, and an important voice of the avant-garde
