If there is one woman I admire, it is Yayoi Kusama, an amazing artist. Nine decades and still going strong! She is cooperating with Louis Vuitton at the moment (which might become very interesting) and further she has done practically everything one possibly can do in one lifetime. But what I admire most is the fact she turned what could have been a defect into an asset. As a child, she started hallucinating, and these hallucinations often featured polkadots and patterns of polkadots. This strange condition enables her today to make the strangest works of art, that really make you stop and stare. At the moment she lives voluntarily in a psychiatric hospital close to her atelier.
Yayoi Kusama sees the world differently, but she made an asset out of that.
