David Shrigley

David Shrigley’s drawings, paintings, animations, and neon texts embrace cartoon aesthetics and an absurd, deadpan sensibility. The artist delights in satirizing everyday human interactions, filtering the mundane through a sense of childlike wonder and an unguarded sense of humor. Shrigley attended the Glasgow School of Art and has exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, and Copenhagen. His works belong in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation, and the Arts Council Collection. Shrigley has also worked in sculpture, photography, and printmaking, and has produced music as well.

Shrigley's early work consisted primarily of pen-and-ink drawings, often accompanied by wry, absurd, and darkly comedic text. As his reputation grew, he expanded his practice to include sculpture, photography, painting, and animation. Throughout his diverse body of work, Shrigley has maintained a signature style that blends crude, childlike drawings with a sophisticated wit and incisive commentary on the absurdities of everyday life. This has earned him a loyal following and significant critical acclaim.
