Yinka Shonibare MBE | Studio Visit | TateShots

Nelson's ship in a bottle by Yinka ShonibareWe visit artist Yinka Shonibare MBE in his East London studio where he has created a separate exhibition space for emerging artists. The multi-disciplinary artist grew up in Nigeria before returning to England to study Fine Art in London at Byam Shaw School of Art and Goldsmiths College.

Poised between Nigerian and British culture, Shonibare produced a playful, witty and inquisitive art from the collision between the two. Fusing painting, sculpture, craft and costume design, his work has been impossible to classify by medium alone.
