Synopsis

British painter Chris Ofili (b. 1968) is one of the most remarkable artists of his generation. This vibrantly illustrated survey, which accompanies a major Tate exhibi¬≠tion, sheds new light on Ofili‚Äôs inspiration and technique. Ofili‚Äôs paintings often refer to his Nigerian heritage and the wider African-American and Afro-Caribbean experi¬≠ence. He uses a range of materials in his works, including sequins, glitter, map pins, and his trademark, varnished elephant dung. Because of this, Ofili‚Äôs painting The Holy Virgin Mary was declared ‚Äúblasphemous‚ÄĚ by former New York City mayor Rudy Guiliani when it arrived at the Brooklyn Museum in 1999 for the Sensation exhibition. An outstanding artist whose work garners attention worldwide, Ofili was closely involved with the preparation of this volume.
