Name: Yinka Shonibare
Nationality: British
Born: 
‎August 9, 1962 (age 56); London, U.K
Style: A contemporary artist, known for his sculptures and installations, Shonibare’s work explores issues of colonialism, race, class, stereotypes and globalisation. He is most famous for incorporating the patterns of brightly coloured Dutch wax fabric within his sculptures.
Famous Pieces of Art: Yinka Shonibare’s most famous works of art are The Swing (after Fragonard (2001), a take on Jean-Honore Fragonard’s famed Rococo painting and Mr and Mrs Andrews (after Gainsborough, 1998). Shonibare’s Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle (2010), which was initially displayed on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Sqaure, proved to be so popular that the Art Fund and National Maritime Museum launched a successful public appeal to acquire and permanently display this work outside the Sammy Ofer Wing of the museum. Should you visit the Museum or even Greenwich Park, you might just catch a glimpse of it!
