"a polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement... Polka dots are a way to infinity."

Bold, Consuming, Overwhelming, Repetetive, Colourful.
Japanese Artist, Yayoi Kusama is a force to be reckoned with.

Recognized as one of the most influentiual living artists today, Yayoi Kusama is driven to create her arresting, polka-dot influenced art pieces due to hallucinations caused by mental illness. In these hallucinations vast fields of polka dots or other patterns seemingly develop all around Kusama, covering every surface entirely.

Through her Artwork, Kusama allows us to enter and experience life in her world, a world dominated by polka dots, repetition and colour.
