Yayoi Kusama Biography:
Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto-shi, Nagano-Ken, Japan in 1929. Kusama is probably Japan’s most famous and premiere artist of the modern era. Her art has been described as containing attributes of feminism, minimalism, abstract expressionism and pop art.
Kusama’s paintings reflect childhood hallucinations, and her art has been an attempt to exorcise those demons. In the late 1950’s, she began a series of Infinity Net Paintings that reflected with dots, nets and flowers her childhood affliction of suffering from repetitive hallucinations. 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.
Although it is hard to keep track of the countless exhibition and museum retrospect’s that this artist has been honoured with throughout her career, Pop an Contemporary Fine Art is proud to have held her first solo exhibition in Singapore, titled: “The Dots Within” Yayoi Kusama exhibition, held in September 2011 at ION Orchard.
