Born in Britain to Nigerian parents, Yinka Shonibare, MBE is recognized internationally for his provocative sculptural installations, photographs and films that contrast African and European imagery and convention. Best known is the artist's sculptural work, which presents headless mannequins clothed in Victorian era dress made from atypical fabrics: brightly colored, wax-printed cloths commonly identified as African batiks.
