Top Ten Paintings/Works of Art by Yayoi Kusama

Top Ten Paintings/Works of Art by Yayoi Kusama

       Born in Matsumoto (Nagano Prefecture,Japan) on March 29, 1929, Yayoi Kusama has experienced hallucinations and severe obsessive thoughts since childhood, often of a suicidal nature. She claims that as a small child she suffered severe physical abuse by her mother. Early in Kusama’s career, she began covering surfaces (walls, floors, canvases, and later, household objects and naked assistants) with the polka dots that would become a trademark of her work. The vast fields of polka dots, or “infinity nets,” as she called them, were taken directly from her hallucinations.
