With Viz Pictures and their recently built "NEW PEOPLE" building showcasing Japanese pop culture especially Japanese artwork, their "New People Artist Series" has been one of the highlight releases from the company as art fans can now catch a personal glimpse of Japan's popular (and very private) artists. The first release "New People Artist Series 001: Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara" was just an enjoyable documentary of a man who is not very public, seeing his artwork come to fruition for an ambitious project and seeing him actually painting his artwork was truly amazing.

Here we are with the second volume of the New People Artist Series and this time we have Yayoi Kusama and this release is not just extraordinary, for fans of Japanese art, this is probably the only chance we can see the artist so up-close and personal.

Yayoi Kusama is an avant-garde artist known for her polka dots, her trademark and it's been a big part of her work since the 1950's and now in her 80's, she still continues her artwork with no signs of stopping. The polka dots are "infinity nets" which describe her hallucinations that come from her life in which she was abused by her mother (who despised her getting into artwork but mostly because her father was a philanderer and her mother expected her to keep tabs on her father's infidelity). She's also an artist that has suffered from major depression and has attempted suicide several times and has said numerous times that all she has had in her life is her artwork (note: Kusama chooses to live at a mental hospital near her place of work and she has staff watching over her as well).

But if there is one thing that Kusama is known for is her dedication and passion for her artwork.

Verified Purchase
I loved Yayoi's exhibition and bought the DVD to find out more about her and her work. I watched it together with my husband but both found the DVD very boring. Sometimes the subtitles just stop in a sentence or only start well into the conversation which is a bit annoying. Also some scenes go on for too long where not much is happening. I watched the whole DVD but don't find I've learned much about her past, her creative process or work she's done throughout her live. We're quite disappointed with the DVD.
