Brilliant Ideas: Artist Yinka Shonibare | Episode 04
Yinka Shonibare explores big ideas - empire, globalisation, money, war, race and class - with wit and exuberant colour. He works in painting, sculpture, photography, film and performance, overcoming a physical disability to create his work. Born 1962 in London, Shonibare grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. He returned to London to study Fine Art, and continues to live and work in the city. In 2010, “Nelson's Ship in a Bottle” – which was displayed on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square - became his first public art commission. Shonibare often works with brightly coloured fabrics (Dutch wax-printed cotton) bought from London markets. Meet the artist in the fourth episode of Brilliant Ideas, presented by Bloomberg and Hyundai Motor. (Source: Bloomberg)
