I translate the hallucinations and obsessional images that plague me into sculptures and paintings.” - Yayoi Kusama - A famously provocative avant-garde artist,  Yayoi Kusama  is best known for her works featuring psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, and intense self-reflection. - After representing Japan at the Venice Biennale in 1993, Kusama’s work received newly heightened recognition from the international art world and in 2008, Kusama became the best-selling living female artist, with works breaking record prices at auction. - Today marks her 85th Birthday
