Chris Ofili
Chris Ofili
Artist

Chris Ofili is one of the rising stars of British art, and his paintings are amongst the most talked about works on the British art scene. In 1998, he won the Turner Prize, and is currently the most famous and successful black British visual artist. His work is controversial because he attaches to the surface of nearly all his pieces pats of elephant dung!


Born in Manchester of Nigerian parents, Chris studied painting at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, London and Berlin. His works adorn the walls of a variety of galleries and are sold at Christies for more than £10,000 a piece. For all his achievements, Chris says all he is looking for 'is to have fun'.
