"I always want to refer to the fact that my work is artificial; it is artifice. It is art, made as art; it is not unmediated reality. It is mediated reality through form, and form is artifice. What I really like in a work of art is for the formal strategy to be part of the meaning of the work."

-Yinka Shonibare MBE
