    Artist Yinka Shonibare whose work is as breathtaking as it is thought-provoking. Shonibare is a London sculptural and instillation artist who deals with the theme of class and globalization, more specifically the complicated relationship between Africa and Europe. So you will often seen African-style textiles on his sculptures which take the form of something commonly European.

The Duchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century: Yinka Shonibare

Mr. Shonibare does a lot of work exploring the clash between Africa and Europe, historically and culturally, and the various issues of globalization and cultural appropriation-- issues that I think are pretty relevant to the whole culture of Steam Punk, and anyone interested in taking their ensemble away from Eurocentrism.

Yinka Shonibare's first solo exhibition in the western United States opens at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in California featuring an idyllic family riding human-powered flying machines modeled after 19th century drawings, alluding to the continual freedom sought by emigrants and tourists alike.

Yinka Shonibare perhaps one of my favorite artists. If you haven't seen his work prepare to be impressed!
