ArtsBeat: Yayoi Kusama The Polka Dot Princess
The conceptual artist Yayoi Kusama has been painting dots and nets since the age of ten. The environments she creates are stunning, menacing, and overwhelming, providing a brief glimpse of the world she inhabits – one filled with hallucinations and visions. Her art has allowed her to manage and express her obsessive visions, and has been recognized with numerous awards and retrospectives. At the age of 80, she continues to produce work in her studio by day, returning to the mental institution where she chooses to reside by night.
