About this product
- DescriptionBritish artist David Shrigley (b. 1968, Macclesfield) is best kwn for his humorous drawings that make witty and wry observations on everyday life. Currently based in Glasgow, he trained as a fine artist and his deliberately crude graphic style gives his work an immediate and accessible appeal, while simultaneously offering insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. This book, published on the occasion of his first major survey show in London, will cover the full range of Shrigley's diverse practice which extends far beyond drawing to include photography, books, sculpture, digital animation, painting and music. It will also feature exciting new commissions and site specific installations. In addition to exhibiting internationally, he regularly contributes cartoons for the Guardian Weekend magazine and the New Statesman, and recently created an animation for the UK Save the Arts campaign.
- Author BiographyDave Eggers is a writer, author and the founder and editor of McSweeney's, an independent publishing house based in San Francisco. Cliff Lauson is Curator at the Hayward Gallery, London. Martin Herbert is a writer and critic. He writes regularly for Artforum and Frieze, and is also European Editor of Modern Painters. Jonathan Monk is an artist, living in Berlin, whose work includes a wide range of media including installations, photography, film, sculpture and performance. His tongue-in-cheek methods often recall procedural approaches typical of 1960's Conceptualism, but without sharing their utopian ideals and notions of artistic genius.
