Yayoi Kusama, my hero also.
Yayoi Kusama has always been my favorite artists that I’m not only fascinated by her repeated patterns but also inspired by her personal experience and how she relates them into her work of arts. According to Wikipedia, Kusama has worked in a wide variety of media, including painting, collage, sculpture, performance art and environmental installations which all features her iconic psychedelic use of colors, repetition of patterns (especially dots) and also genital objects. She is also a precursor of the Pop Art, minimalist, and feminist art movement. Personally I was desperate to go to her exhibition last year in New York but somehow I missed it. Eventually I had the opportunity and went to the one in Shanghai that was absolutely mind-blowing and inspiring. The exhibition was divided into several sections which includes her early period paintings, flower and dog sculptures, the pumpkins and of course the “Mirror Room”.
