BIOGRAPHY

 

Established artist Yayoi Kusama, both tenaciously creative and obsessive, creates artworks wrested from her stream of consciousness. As a child, Kusama suffered from hallucinations of nets, dots and flowers that appeared to cover every inch of space and threaten to obliterate her. The hallucinations left an indelible impact on the artist, the imagery of which continues to manifest itself in her work. Essentially self-taught and fiercely determined to be an artist since childhood, Kusama arrived in the United States in 1957 at the age of 28. She rapidly established herself among the New York avant-garde and gained international attention during the 1960s with her paintings, sculpture, installations, poems, novels, performances and film. Her powerful presence during this period has been influential and inspirational for subsequent generations of artists. Her work has been exhibited at hundreds of galleries and museums, as well as included in private, public, and institutional collections, worldwide during her extraordinary career.
