About the artist
Chris Ofili is an English painter whose work engages issues of black identity. He uses imagery with associations of racial stereotype as a means to challenge them. References within Ofili’s work derive from a wide spectrum from the bible to jazz and hip hop music, from Blake and Rodin to images of pornography. Ofili’s work is ostensibly powerful but also contains contrastingly themes of humour and vulnerability.

He was awarded the Turner Prize in 1998. By 2000 his work was in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Tate Gallery, London, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He studied in London at Chelsea School of Art (1988–91) and the Royal College of Art (1991–3).
