“YOKO ONO” was already a cultural symbol, before attaching to the name of John Lennon. However, “Yoko Ono” is also an individual figure, a contemporary artist. Her works are compact, including all the most common feelings and sensations of human life.
Obscured by the glory of John Lennon, Yoko Ono persists in art creation as a contemporary artist despite Lennon not being by her side. The exploring of “individuality” of modern female artists on her was already not a problem and her work has already received an abundance of mixed reviews. Her individuality has been fully shown in her experiences and life.
