David Shrigley David Shrigley

David Shrigley's work is characterised by humourous drawings that make witty and wry observations on everyday life. Combining text and image Shrigley's illustrations feature crossed-out words, scribbled, uneven lines, and darkly funny aphorisms that capture both the dark and light of the human spirit. Best known for his shrewdly absurd and funny drawings, Shrigley expanded his practise over the years to include sculpture, editorial cartoons, publishing, music and filmmaking. His work has been exhibited in galleries and institutions all over the world. In 2013, he was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize after his first major survey 'Brain Activity' at the Hayward Gallery, London and that same year he received the Trafalgar Square Fourth Plinth commission, a large public-art project realized in 2016. Early this year, David Shrigley's uniquely British work has been part of Hang-Up Gallery exhibition TYPE, a celebration of one of the great traditions of British culture: dark, dry humour.
