David Shrigley - New Now London Tuesday, December 15, 2020 | Phillips
  • "I don’t consciously make art about anything. Themes just seem to occur intuitively. I read a lot about politics and current affairs and I’d like that to feed into the work somehow but it doesn’t always work that way." —David Shrigley

    David Shrigley is best known for his dark humoured satirical drawings that pokes fun and exposes the banality of everyday objects and situations. His works at once confronts serious issues yet is contrasted by the bright and light hearted imagery.
