Yinka Shonibare, It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To, 2012. SOLD OUT Favorite
Accompanying his exhibition FABRIC-ATION, March 2nd- September 1st, 2013, at the YSP, Yinka Shonibare MBE created this limited edition especially for YSP. Beautifully detailed with 24ct gold gilding, the prints are finished with different hand applied fabrics, making each one totally unique. The work relates to the culture of excess that has contributed to the current financial crisis. Shonibare has written on the relationship between money and art: 'I think that artists shouldn't follow capital - I think capital should follow art. I am not being moralistic about the relationship of money to art. I just find it difficult to make work without thinking about the impact or the potential impact of global trauma on me and my ability to continue to produce as an artist'.
