Your definitive guide to Yayoi Kusama
Born in Matsumoto City, Japan in 1929, Yayoi Kusama scandalised Japan with her early work, before moving to New York in the late 1950s at the age of 27 where she gained popularity in the mid-1960s for her provocative, avant-garde work. A creative polymath whose skill-set spans the mediums of painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, performance, film, printmaking, installation and environmental art as well as literature and fashion, Kusama's work is expansive and immersive, with an unquantifiable reach.
Currently living and working in Tokyo, Kusama (now 87-years old) is the subject of a major international museum tour throughout northern Europe and the United States, with Yayoi Kusama: Sculptures, Paintings & Mirror Rooms, currently running at London’s Victoria Miro Gallery. Here, we give you a definitive 26-point guide to the prolific artist. via Dazed
