I’ve always been intrigued by the work of Yinka Shonibare though I am yet to see it in person. If you are in the Yorkshire area you can get to see for yourself (and tell me all about it).

There is an ongoing showing of his works at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park until September, 2013. FABRIC-ATION is billed to feature over 30 works by the artist, including sculpture, film, photography and painting, many of which are shown in the UK for the first time. It gets more interesting! The works are said to include flying machines, aliens, toy paintings, food fairiesrevolutionary children, spacemen and ballerinas.

If that combination doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will!
