Known the world over as the Queen of Polka Dots, Yayoi Kusama’s mother didn’t want her to become an artist and tore up her early drawings. Inspired by hallucinations she had of talking flowers as a child, she went on to have a prolific career as a multimedia artist of international acclaim. Dressing in polka dots and wearing a bright red wig, her persona is itself a work of performance art. Even though she has spent 42 years of her life in a psychiatric institution, her lifetime influence extends to music, design, art and fashion.
