About Artist: Yayoi Kusama was born in 1929 and is a Japanese artist, and also an acclaimed writer. Throughout her career so far she has worked in various different mediums, including sculpture and performance art. Painting and collage are also two areas in which she has excelled. Famously, Yayoi Kusama artwork has an impact on contemporaries such as Andy Warhol. Kusama studied in 1948 in Kyoto, and left for America in 1957. She settled in New York City and had work exhibited alongside contemporaries like Warhol and George Seagal in the 1960s. She returned to Japan in 1973 and became an art dealer. Unfortunately, this particular development didn't flourish and her business went bankrupt after a number of years. In 1977 she admitted herself to hospital after experiencing some psychiatric issues. This is where she has spent the rest of her life. In hospital, she has produced artwork as well as writing several novels. Her work is conceptual, and she has had retrospectives at some very famous galleries such as the Tate Modern and the Whitney Museum. In 1959 she had her first solo exhibition in New York. In more recent times Yayoi Kusama work has been exhibited at the Tate modern in 2012. She has also committed to hundreds of her pieces of work being exhibited in Korea.
