Chris Ofili Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1968 -

(born 1968 Manchester, England) British painter. A highly innovative yet controversial contemporary artist, Chris Ofili studied at the Tameside College of Technology from 1987-88, the Chelsea School of Art from 1988-1991, and the Royal College of Art from 1991-1993, where he received a MA in fine art. In 1992 he won a scholarship to travel to Zimbabwe; the trip made a lasting impact on his art. Ofili’s works deal with black identity and culture. He paints in bright colors with various materials incorporated into his works, including his most unique material elephant dung. Ofili is most well known for his work The Holy Virgin Mary that appeared in the 1997 exhibition Sensation and caused an uproar particularly among Catholics for its use of dung and pornographic imagery when the exhibition moved to the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Since then, his career has flourished; Ofili continues to receive much success; in 1998 he won the Tate Gallery’s Turner Prize and by 2000 his work was included in the permanent collections of the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. In 2000 and 2002 he had solo exhibits at the Victoria Miro Gallery in London and in 2003 Ofili was featured in the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

            Est: €9,000 - €10,000

            CHRIS OFILI (Manchester, 1968). Untitled, 1997. Watercolour and pencil on paper. Signed and dated on the back. Size: 24 x 15.5 cm; 40 x 30 cm (frame). Chris Ofili creates intricate, kaleidoscopic paintings and works on paper fusing abstraction and figuration. Ofili rose to fame in the 1990s for his complex and playful paintings, embellished with a distinctive mix of resin, glitter and collage. His vibrant, symbolic and often mysterious works are based on the lush landscapes and local traditions of the island of Trinidad, where he has lived since 2005. Employing a diverse range of aesthetic and cultural sources, including Zimbabwean cave paintings, blaxploitation genre films, Ovid's Metamorphoses and modernist painting. Ofili's work investigates the intersection of desire, identity and representation. Born in 1968 in Manchester, England, Ofili received his BFA from Chelsea School of Art, London in 1991 and his MFA from the Royal College of Art, London in 1993. In 2005, the artist joined David Zwirner, where he has had four solo exhibitions at the New York gallery. The Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, for the opening of its new building, commissioned Ofili's work for a long-term installation, which was on view from 2017 to 2019. In 2017, the National Gallery in London presented "Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic", which marked the first time the artist worked in the medium of tapestry. That same year, Ofili created a site-specific artwork, incorporating a mural, for Marisol, the newly redesigned restaurant at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. In 2015, a group of Ofili's paintings were included in "All The World's Futures", the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, curated by Okwui Enwezor. The artist's work has been the subject of solo exhibitions around the world, including "Chris Ofili: Night and Day", the first major solo exhibition of the artist's work in a museum in the United States. The show was organised by the New Museum in New York, where it was first presented in 2014, and travelled to the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado in 2015. Other monographic exhibitions have taken place at the Arts Club of Chicago (2010); Tate Britain, London (2010 and 2005); kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (2006); The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York (2005); and the British Pavilion, 50th Venice Biennale, Venice (2003). In 2017, Ofili was awarded the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen, and in 1998 he received the prestigious Turner Prize. The artist's works are represented in leading international collections, including the British Museum, London; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Tate Gallery, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

            CHRIS OFILI (Manchester, 1968). Untitled, 1997. Watercolour and pencil on paper. Signed and dated on the back. Size: 24 x 15.5 cm; 40 x 30 cm (frame). Chris Ofili creates intricate, kaleidoscopic paintings and works on paper fusing abstraction and figuration. Ofili rose to fame in the 1990s for his complex and playful paintings, embellished with a distinctive mix of resin, glitter and collage. His vibrant, symbolic and often mysterious works are based on the lush landscapes and local traditions of the island of Trinidad, where he has lived since 2005. Employing a diverse range of aesthetic and cultural sources, including Zimbabwean cave paintings, blaxploitation genre films, Ovid's Metamorphoses and modernist painting. Ofili's work investigates the intersection of desire, identity and representation. Born in 1968 in Manchester, England, Ofili received his BFA from Chelsea School of Art, London in 1991 and his MFA from the Royal College of Art, London in 1993. In 2005, the artist joined David Zwirner, where he has had four solo exhibitions at the New York gallery. The Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, for the opening of its new building, commissioned Ofili's work for a long-term installation, which was on view from 2017 to 2019. In 2017, the National Gallery in London presented "Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic", which marked the first time the artist worked in the medium of tapestry. That same year, Ofili created a site-specific artwork, incorporating a mural, for Marisol, the newly redesigned restaurant at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. In 2015, a group of Ofili's paintings were included in "All The World's Futures", the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, curated by Okwui Enwezor. The artist's work has been the subject of solo exhibitions around the world, including "Chris Ofili: Night and Day", the first major solo exhibition of the artist's work in a museum in the United States. The show was organised by the New Museum in New York, where it was first presented in 2014, and travelled to the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado in 2015.

In 2017, Ofili was awarded the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen, and in 1998 he received the prestigious Turner Prize. The artist's works are represented in leading international collections, including the British Museum, London; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Tate Gallery, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
