History about Kusama
Yayoi Kusama moved from Japan to New York after reaching out to one of her artist idols, who gave her the advice to move to New York if she wants to expand her art.
Kusama did, and this lead to her explosion of art and fame.
In 1977, she sent herself to a psychiatric hospital where she still continues her art. Most artist would stop, but she didn’t. She is still creating pieces, and moving all of us with her beautiful works.
Her first infinity mirror room was call “Phalli’s Field”. It contained hundreds of soft, phallic forms inside of the infinity mirrored room.
Thus, creating a never-ending field. After that, she made it infinity mirror rooms common within her artwork.
