Yinka Shonibare

Born in England in 1962 and raised in Nigeria, Yinka Shonibare currently lives and works in London, where he has
gained international attention by exploring issues of race and class through a range of
media that includes sculpture, painting, photography, and installation art.
Adopting a richly complex, unconventional approach, Shonibare lampoons the concept of achieving
status through what might be called cultural authenticity.
His works, simultaneously innocent and subversive, address a range of cultural and historical
issues and, in the process, blur the boundaries of design, ethnography, and contemporary art.
