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. He is perhaps best known for his signature use of a colourful "African" batik fabric that actually originated in Indonesia and was introduced to Africa in the 19th century by British and Dutch colonisers. Incorporated into Victorian costumes, covering sculptures of extraterrestrials, or stretched like canvas for paintings, these vibrant textiles cleverly challenge issues of origin and authenticity. 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. Whether lampooning Victorian propriety or commenting on what it means to be an "alien," Shonibare makes art that challenges straightforward interpretations.
