Inspired by Yayoi Kusama aĀ Japanese artist, this bright beauty was designed with Turquoise Chunks and Beads, Clay Neon Pink Slices, Bronze Crystal Beads and Pink Micro Mosaic Pendant on Brass šŸŒø

Kusama came to public attention when she organized a series ofĀ happeningsĀ in which naked participants were painted with brightly colouredĀ polka dots.Ā Since the 1970s, Kusama has continued to create art, most notably installations in various museums around the world.

Kusama has been open about her mental health. She says that art has become her way to express her mental problems.

Kusama's works on display are meant to immerse the whole person into her accumulations, obsessions and repetitions. These infinite, repetitive works were originally meant to eliminate Kusama's intrusive thoughts, but she now shares it with the world.

Creating these feelings amongst audiences was intentional. These experiences seem to be unique to her work because Kusama wanted others to sympathise with her in her troubled life.

Bedatri D. Choudhury has described how Kusama's lack of feeling in control throughout her life made her, either consciously or subconsciously, want to control how others perceive time and space when entering her exhibits. This statement seems to imply that without her trauma, Kusama would not have created these works as well or perhaps not at all.

Art had become a coping mechanism for Kusama.
