Here is about the artist ‘Yinka Shonibre MBE’.

Yinka Shonibre MBE (The following extract is taken from Website of Daegu art museum)
British-born Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE (b.1962, London) is an acclaimed contemporary African artist known for his superb aesthetic sensibility. Shonibare contracted a rare inflammatory disease when he was 18, resulting in physical disability. Overcoming such unforeseen adversity through sheer willpower, he went on to study art at university.

His singular view of the world is expressed in his art. As a dark-complected individual raised in a white society, Shonibare unflinchingly examines how Eurocentrism and racism are deeply and unthinkingly embedded in Western society. However, his works are approachable, for his criticism of imperialism, colonialism and the distortions of history that lie at the root of racism and Eurocentrism are tempered by a sense of humor.


Shonibare’s works offer a singular view of what was, and what could be. Using varied media –sculpture, installation, film, and photography –Shonibare’s readings of history incorporate art, music, literature and culture to create rich narratives and a unique voice.
