Truth Bomb: Yayoi Kusama

by Abi Crompton

Our fabulous boss lady Abi Crompton is releasing her very first book. 
An ode to other boss ladies of the art world, Truth Bomb: Inspiration from the Mouths and Minds of Women Artists, takes a glimpse into the worlds of twenty-two remarkable and inspiring women artists. 
Of the many inspirational women that feature in Abi’s book, one is the renowned Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama. Not only has Kusama had exhibitions at galleries all across the world, but her distinctive style has led her to become the highest-selling living female artist. Hell yeah.
WSJ Yayoi Kusama
Since starting her career with a single polka dot in 1957, Kusama has challenged the way that we see art by using all forms of mediums and delving into abstract expressionism, minimalism, pop art and feminist art.
From watercolours, sculptures and vibrant paintings that give us a glimpse into how her mental illness allows her to see the world to covering rooms at galleries in large polka dots or mirrors - Kusama is an unforgettable artist that we can't help but be obsessed with her art
