Wangechi Mutu

Kenyan-American artist, born 1972, moved to the US in the 1990s. She works in sculpture, photography, film, collage, acrylic paint, performance art, and more. Very big right now; the Met just bought two of her sculptures. She is my idea of a successful avant garde artist; her stuff is strange, and some of it fails with me, but when it works it has the shock of the new.
