Yinka Shonibare, MBE, (born 1962) is a British-Nigerian artist living in London. His work explores cultural identity and colonialism. A hallmark of his art is the brightly coloured fabric he uses. Having a physical disability that paralyses one side of his body, Shonibare uses assistants to make works under his direction.
One of his most famous works was on a plinth in trafalgar square, entitled “Nelson’s ship in a bottle”. Learn more about it here https://youtu.be/voEgrnPqKxo
