Yayoi Kusama is an incredible avant-garde artist who has shared exhibits with famed pop artists like Andy Warhol. She is a true genius in psychedelic compositions that are inspired by her hallucinations and obsessive thoughts.

Yayoi Kusama's work and eccentric behavior are both perhaps inspired by a mixture of her early years in the New York art scene and her own OCD. Although Kusama chooses to live in a mental hospital in Tokyo, she frequently visits her nearby art studio, where she creates her dotted and spotted masterpieces.
