Yayoi Kusama ( born 1928, Matsumoto )
One of the largest contemporary artists in Japan.
Kusama is also enigmatic – critics have variously ascribed her work to minimalism, feminism, obsessivism, surrealism, art brut, pop, and abstract expressionism.
Because of fragile mental health, she voluntarily lives at a Tokyo psychiatric hospital, in a small room, for over 20 years.
