i am excited to see the fourth plinth installation by artist yinka shonibare especially as i have good friends who have worked on it! The ship was constructed at mdm props ltd where they make various work for artists and museums. the african print sails which adorn the ship were printed in brixton at the london printworks trust where i use the same studio. shonibare is known for using african print textiles in his work, often juxtaposed with references to western art history and european literature.
