Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama

The 84-year-old Japanese artist’s polka dots have been a signature of her roughly 60-year career. She continues to exhibit at museums around the world—including a major solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art last year—and collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a line of merchandise. Known for her bright wigs and unusual home address—she has lived in a Japanese mental hospital since the 1970s—she is now the top-selling living female artist of all time, selling a total $118 million at auction, according to auction database Artnet.
