Yayoi Kusama — Japanese Artist born on March 22, 1929,

Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist and writer.

A precursor of the pop art, minimalist and feminist art movements, Kusama influenced contemporaries such as Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg.

With just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved. In the universe, there is the sun, the moon, the earth, and hundreds of millions of stars. All of us live in the unfathomable mystery and infinitude of the universe. Pursuing 'philosophy of the universe' through art under such circumstances has led me to what I call 'stereotypical repetition.'
Since my childhood, I have always made works with polka dots. Earth, moon, sun and human beings all represent dots; a single particle among billions.
I, Kusama, am the modern Alice in Wonderland.
Polka dots are fabulous.
I wanted to start a revolution, using art to build the sort of society I myself envisioned.
