Examples from the Web for ofili
Dung is to Ofili what beds are to Tracey Emin or formaldehyde is to Damien Hirst.
As a painter, too, Ofili exploits that contradictory feeling.
For all his willingness to embrace the 'audacious', Ofili can render human experience with unadulterated sanctity too.
Finding and using a language, and making it your own, is a key Ofili trope.
