Kusama: Princess of Polka Dots will be the first American film to feature the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama's remarkable story. Arriving in New York in 1957 as an underdog her only resource was her determination to succeed. Within eighteen months later exhibited a revolutionary series of mural-sized paintings.
The paparazzi nicknamed her the Polka Dot Princess in the 1960s. At that time, she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention. Now in her early 80s, Kusama is considered Japan's greatest living artist.
There is a Dotted World that takes place inside us, another mental space behind the obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The goal of this project is to create a doodle animation to express my passion for design. I choose doodle art to express my obsession for design because it represents the unique identity form my hand-drawing style.
