HALLUCINATORY ART: YAYOI KUSAMA

"Installation by Yayoi Kusama"

Phot credit: whattoseemilan.com

Currently being considered one of the most Japanese influential artists of the contemporary art field, clearly Yayoi Kusama’s artwork (Matsumoto, Japan, 1929) does not leave anyone indifferent.
The leit motiv of her art is the Polka Dots. Huge fields of all sizes dots have covered her installations from the moment Kusama went into art, extracted from and playing with the hallucinations she experiments from childhood.
Installations are not only the only way this artist has found to express her most inner world, other disciplines such as painting, novel and poetry are also territories explored by Kusama.
The Tate Modern (London) holds an exhibition displaying her earliest and latest works which will run from 9 February until 5 June 2012. It is a fantastic event for deeply knowing one of the leading figures of the worldwide contemporary art scene.
