Catalogue Note

Chris Ofili featured in the exhibition Surprise Surprise at the ICA
in 2006. He has generously donated a new drawing for the ICA's 60th
anniversary auction, entitled Afrotranslinear Two, 2007-08. The
artist's fantastical paintings touch on a variety of sources from art
and popular culture, including comic-book heroes, pornography,
jazz, hip hop and Blaxploitation movies. The donated work is
typical of Ofili's pencil drawings, which employ delicate,
psychedelic patterns.
