Yayoi Kusama creates fantastical paintings using patterns of polka dots and nets as motifs. Her works span a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, film and immersive installation. Kusama was born in the Nagano Prefecture of Japan in 1929. She travelled to the United States in 1957 where she exhibited huge paintings, soft sculptures and environmental art employing mirrors and electric lights. Her original works and art 'happenings' established her status as an avant-garde artist in New York and beyond. Kusama returned to Japan in 1973, and continues to exhibit in both Japan and abroad. She is now one of world's most prominent contemporary artists.
