One of 3000 limited editions, signed in ink by the artist and stamped with numbering on the underside. Sold in the original packaging with labels, may exist some original minor imperfections given the nature of the material. Overall size: W12.5 x D7.5 x H29 cm David Shrigley is an artist and illustrator, who is best known for his distinctive drawing style and works that make satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions. Self-branded as an outsider in the art world, his humorous drawings and texts typically feature elements of everyday life, scribbled crossed-out words, uneven lines, and darkly funny aphorisms about the world. Shrigley’s work has been exhibited widely, including solo shows at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. In 2013, he was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize for his solo show "David Shrigley: Brain Activity"  at the Hayward Gallery in London. In September 2016, David Shrigley's ‘Really Good' was unveiled in Trafalgar Square, for the Fourth Plinth Commission. The artist also currently has an on-going presentation in the Gallery at Sketch, London as part of a long-term programme of artist-conceived restaurants. Shrigley was a Turner Prize nominee in 2013, following his major mid-career retrospective at the Hayward Gallery, London entitled ‘Brain Activity'. In 2018 Shrigley was appointed as the Guest Director of the Brighton Festival.
