David Shrigley10/01/2006 - 05/01/2007
Born in Macclesfield, England, in 1968, artist David Shrigley lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland, where he attended Glasgow School of Art from 1988 to 1991.
Shrigley’s work references a long history of surreal cartoonists including Edward Lear, James Thurber, Spike Milligan and Gary Larson. His awkward, intentionally messy hand-drawings are alternatives to slick, retouched digital prints.
Shrigley’s work has been shown internationally in venues including the UCLA Hammer Gallery; the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, New York; the Serpentine Gallery, London; the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; Kunsthaus, Zurich; and many others.
