Born in London and raised in Nigeria, Shonibare employs a diverse range of media – from sculpture, painting and installation to photography and film – to probe matters of race, class, cultural identity and history. Whether lampooning Victorian propriety or commenting on what it means to be an ‘alien,’ Shonibare makes art that challenges straightforward interpretations. This book – the most comprehensive resource available on Shonibare – presents the best work of the London-based artist’s career, including his high-profile project for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, London and other innovative public sculptures.
