If you are in London, you should go and see the Yayoi Kusama retrospective at Tate Modern which will run until 5 June 2012.

"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. Well-known for her repeating dot patterns, her art encompasses an astonishing variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance and immersive installation."

"This is a varied, spectacular exhibition of a truly unique artist. There has never been an exhibition of this size of her work in the UK and this is an unmissable opportunity for both Kusama fans and those new to her work."

I was new to the art of Kusama and especially loved her immersive installations which included the spectacular Infinity Mirror Room in the top image - it was magical and I want to recreate this for someone special.

Kusama-style dining interior - quite trippy:
