    From the age of almost no age and until I was eighteen I was always drawing. The practice of drawing whatever came into my mind was an activity with no name, it was just something I did. I drew when I was at school without thinking about it; teacher talking; me drawing; teacher not talking; me not drawing. Around the age of eighteen I entered art school and stopped drawing in this way. Then ten years later I became curious to see if I could still draw some of my old acquaintances such as loudspeakers, weapons, genitals, ore, an old fruit tree, etc. I guess the lack of words inside the drawings is because of the escapist nature of the work. Drawing is a language in itself. (Tal R in an interview with D. Shrigley, “David Shrigley Interviews Tal R”, Art on Paper, May, 2006).
