Yayoi Kusama is an icon and an obliterator of barriers. She has consistently worked for the last six decades and continues to do so with admirable vigor and ingenuity.
I was privileged to see her work on several occasions, and every time it has surprised me, fascinated me and it has made me think. To be able to have such an effect on a viewer through artwork, is no small feat. All her creations are memorable experiences that leave an indelible mark on the soul.
I truly encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with Yayoi Kusama if they want to ignite the flame of joy in their own lives.
She has endured many obstacles through the years, and her resilience makes her even more relatable and interesting. There’s a lot we can learn from a life well lived, and I would say that Kusama’s is definitely one for the ages.
