One of the most popular artists in Japan.

Massively overrated that artist. Tries to be weird for the sake of it. Poor Paris.

Giant statue of yourself in the middle of Paris is a pretty gutsy move for an art project, I’ll give her that.

Maybe it is the angle, but that looks a little creepy. Did she make it?

Love this. Such an interesting artist and career. Bravo

My wild subliminal imagination thought she was promoting safe sex with all the different colors of Condoms plastered on the building.

wallace: "One of the most popular artists in Japan."

And I think the biggest money maker for her art in the world, if I'm not mistaken. I have no idea why -- I think her work is childish and dreadful, but that's me.

art is subjective but I would not visit her exhibitions. Makes me dizzy.

Yayoi made almost all of her money from creating arts and currently holds a record for the most expensive artwork sold at auction by a living female artist at $7.1 million. However, her net worth is estimated at $20 million.

Wallace: Thanks for the info. Knew she held a record for money in some regard. :) I would never visit an exhibition of hers either if I had a choice. But yes, it is subjective.
