"I couldn’t quite understand the hierarchy of race in this country and it is still somewhat of an alien concept to me because it’s not my natural disposition. It’s not the context I grew up in. I feel more like an observer
because of my African origin. But despite my background, within this context, race is still an issue. It’s one that’s difficult to ignore entirely."

-Yinka Shonibare MBE
