Chris Ofili’s intense­ly coloured and intri­cate­ly orna­ment­ed paint­ings are on show at Tate Britain in a major sur­vey of the artist’s career that brings togeth­er over 45 paint­ings, as well as pen­cil draw­ings and water­colours from the mid 1990s to today. One of the most acclaimed British painters of his gen­er­a­tion, Ofili won the Turn­er Prize in 1998 and rep­re­sent­ed Great Britain at the 50th Venice Bien­nale in 2003.

Ofili has built an inter­na­tion­al rep­u­ta­tion with his works that bridge the sacred and the pro­fane, pop­u­lar cul­ture and beliefs. His exu­ber­ant paint­ings are renowned for their rich lay­er­ing and inven­tive use of media, includ­ing balls of ele­phant dung ”
