Yayoi Kusama: The Queen of Polka Dots

29 Aug 17

Yayoi Kusama is an 88 years old Japanese artist and writer. The world famous artist is also known as ‘the queen of polka dots’. She is recognized worldwide because of using vivid color in her works that often portray polka dots and spotted pumpkins. She is soon going to open a museum in October in Tokyo where she will exhibit all her works. 

During her life long career she has worked with a variety of media that included painting, collage, soft sculpture, performance art and environmental installations. Most of her work exhibits her thematic interest in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. She has also influenced her contemporaries like Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg and George Segal. Highly influenced by abstract expressionist movement, she produced a series of paintings after moving to and settling down in New York City, United States in 1957.

Kusama gained a lot of public attention when she held a series of happenings in which naked participants were painted with polka dots which were brightly colored.
