We don’t particularly enjoy screaming ‘One not to miss!’ at you but seriously, if you have the urge to catch an exhibition and you find yourself in London then hit the newly opened Yayoi Kusama retrospective at the Tate Modern. Obsessed with repeating patterns, dots and intense colour, the 83 year old has accumulated a body of work that includes just about every media you could think of. Apart from being an incredible talent, she also looks like an 80’s Hollywood movie idea of a conceptual artist, which makes us feel like we really are in the presence of greatness. If you need any encouragement spare a couple of minutes and watch on.
“The nine decades of Yayoi Kusama’s life have taken her from rural Japan to the New York art scene to contemporary Tokyo, in a career in which she has continuously innovated and re-invented her style.”
