Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama is an avant-garde artist, popular among the post war New York art scene. Her work is eccentric and encapsulates the power of imagination. She is considered a forerunner for the Pop Art movement.

The media she uses is of a wide variety, having used painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, performance, film, printmaking, installation and environmental art as well as literature and fashion.

She is well known for her dots motif in her work, inspired by the polka-dot hallucinations she had suffered as a child.

Her piece Infinity Mirrored Room appears to be of an unlimited scale, creating an entirely new world through the nature of reflection and lights. The result is breathtaking and perfectly captures the concept of infinity.
