Yoko Ono knows what it’s like to have people second guess her work because of who she is. Many who are unfamiliar with her success in the art world before she married John Lennon assume she didn’t earn her avant-garde status. The same kind of people write off John’s ability as a visual artist.
“Many people still consider him not a very professionally valuable artist. I’d really like to say that you should get what you can from John’s work because it’s really unique and beautiful,” Ono said. “There’s a spirit shining in it.”
