There is not a better example of a hybrid multi-cultural, contemporary artist that has deep roots into the culture and traditions of an Ancient culture, than Yinka Shonibare, the British artist of Nigerian heritage.

This 14 page package includes a bio, facts about his life, Teacher's resources and three lessons with print outs and patterns to work from.
