A man with legs and head made of clear glass. A body consisting of yellow, green and pink sponges with pick-up sticks bristling in all directions. By his side, a wooden spear decorated with fur, hair, and beads. The work Fashion Street (2010) is a tribute to street vendors all over the world and was made by the Camerounian artist Pascale Marthine Tayou, who explores issues of migration, identity, and culture in his art.

Pascale Marthine Tayou has been awarded the ARKEN Art Prize 2011 of DKK 100,000 for his ability to create moving, generous, and challenging artworks that relate with great aesthetic energy to urgent issues in our modern globalised world. His works are among the most innovative and sophisticated on the international art scene right now.
