Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity! by Sarah Suzuki

Into the Wild

Yayoi Kusama: From Here to Infinity! Read Online Free - Growing up in the mountains of Japan, Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) dreamed of becoming an artist. One day, she had a vision in which the world and everything in it—the plants, the people, the sky—were covered in polka dots. She began to cover her paintings, drawings, sculptures, and even her body with dots. As she grew up, she traveled all around the world, from Tokyo to Seattle, New York to Venice, and brought her dots with her. Different people saw these dots in different ways—some thought they were tiny, like cells, and others imagined them enormous, like planets. Every year, Kusama sees more of the world, covering it with dots and offering people a way to experience it the way she does.

Written by Sarah Suzuki, a curator at The Museum of Modern Art, and featuring reproductions of Kusama’s instantly recognizable artworks, this colorful book tells the story of an artist whose work will not be complete until her dots cover the world, from here to infinity.

Nice bio of the artist Yayoi Kusama, whom I didn't know about until today. The story is plainly told, but the illustrations pop nicely, mostly due to their source material. Looking forward to doing a craft time with this book and letting kids experiment with colored dots.

I love Yayoi Kusama and this is a nice intro book for children. I do wish that her OCD had been discussed. I know it's a book for kids, but I was diagnosed when I was 7 and it would have been nice to see that representation. That being said, it's a really good book and a nice introduction to Kusa...

I visited the Yayoi Kusama exhibit yesterday at the Seattle Art Museum. It was spectacular and I bought this book for our public library collection. It's a nice introduction to Kusama and her life story. I hope it will inspire young artists to follow their dreams too. 3.5 stars.

An interesting artist with her own vision. Connected her ideas to her childhood.
