Renowned for his distinctive drawing style and humour, David Shrigley works across a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, animation and music to offer darkly funny observations of people and everyday life.
Shrigley’s work has been exhibited widely, including solo shows at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, the Anton Kern Gallery, New York and the Museum in Glasgow. In 2013, he was nominated for the Turner Prize following his solo show David Shrigley: Brain Activity at the Haywood Gallery in London. While in September 2016, his sculptural piece Really Good was unveiled in Trafalgar Square for the Fourth Plinth Commission. Shrigley’s works are also held in many collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Art Institute of Chicago and The British Council.
