Lot description
This set of three unique and original works on paper by the contemporary artist Chris Ofili were given to the present owner by the artist in 2005. They were executed at the after party of The Studio Museum show, 'Afro Muses 1995-2005' (Harlem, New York), which ran from April 27th - July 3rd, 2005. The works are in excellent original condition.

Chris Ofili was born in Manchester in 1968 to Nigerian parents and studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. One of the best known of the Young British Artists, his portrait of the Virgin Mary propped on elephant dung was the most talked about entry in the “Sensation” show. In 1998, he received the Turner prize for painting and in 2003 he was selected to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale. This show of African lovers in a tropical paradise was a breakthrough.
