In 1973 Kusama moved back to Japan, where she still lives and work. For the last forty years, she has been living voluntarily in a psychiatric asylum but keeps a large studio nearby. Every day between 9 and 18 o’clock she works there diligently together with her assistants. Her artistic oeuvre demonstrates her immense strength and drive.
Kusama is considered Japan’s most important contemporary artist and has, for example, represented the country at the Venice Biennale. Her art has been exhibited in various retrospective shows across the world and has been called the inspiration for minimalism and pop art. In 2014 The Art Newspaper named her the most popular artist in the world.
