KUSAMA Princess of Polka Dots explores artist Yayoi Kusama's journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s (where she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention) and concludes with the international fame she has finally achieved within the art world. Now in her 80s, Kusama has spent the last 30 years living in a mental institution in Japan.Written by
Documentaries are not easily found for artists. I am an avid Yayoi Kusama fan. When I heard there was a movie being made I couldn't wait for it to come out. I went to the premiere and loved it. I smiled with delight and excitement throughout the entire movie. I purchased the DVD because I had to own it. This movie did not disappoint. I have watched it 3 times now. If you want to learn more about Yayoi Kusama, watch this documentary. If you want to learn and be introduced to an incredible living artist, watch this documentary. If you want to learn about art, see this documentary. If you support women and their plight to be noticed, watch this documentary. I loved it. I highly recommend it. Heather Lenz did a wonderful job showing us who Yayoi Kusama is, what her art is about and why she is such an important living artist in our lifetime.
