Yinka- Magic Ladder Kid V

Yinka Shonibare I must say is a unique artist. Many of his pieces speaks on common universal ideologies and social issues. I like this piece in particular because of its comment on knowledge and success. It is widely known that the more you know,  the further you will climb the ladder to success in this world. In the piece he manages to use the globe as the head of the person which could represent the capacity of how far someones mind could go. Then he has a ladder which has a book for each step. This concept is really straightforward about what the amount of knowledge you have can do for you. More importantly, he inscribes his personal style of designing a colorful and well dressed mannequin. Overall this piece was well orchestrated and brilliant.
