Turner Prize winner Chris Ofili unveils a new tapestry, handwoven by Dovecot Tapestry Studio 

Commissioned by the Clothworkers’ Company, Ofili has been collaborating with the internationally renowned Dovecot Tapestry Studio to see his design translated into a handwoven tapestry. The imagery reflects Ofili’s ongoing interest in classical mythology and the stories, magic, and colour of the Trinidadian landscape he inhabits.

Ofili returns to the National Gallery following the exhibition Metamorphosis: Titian 2012.

The tapestry goes on permanent display in the Clothworkers’ Hall following this exhibition.
