YAYOI KUSAMA

Liz
Thanks, Louisa, for cluing me in that the dotty ladies in the post below are the work of Yayoi Kusama. Though I studied and majored in art history at college, I know embarassingly little about who's who in the art world today (or in the past for that matter). I'd heard vaguely of Kusama, but when I looked into her a little more, I loved what I saw. I want to find a cool book on her, but in the meantime, here's some of my favorites from the world of google images.

She's a self-described crazy lady that's obsessed with polka dots. Amazing!
