Product Information

David Shrigley is probably the funniest gallery-type artist who ever lived -- DAVE EGGERS One of the cleverest, funniest conceptual artists . . . Genius * * Guardian * * With a casual gesture Shrigley points to that hideous shape whose name I've never known - and then he names it. And the name is profoundly, embarrassingly familiar. I'm laughing while frantically searching for a pen, so desperate to capture the feeling he has unearthed in me -- MIRANDA JULY The best gift book, for a crazy person you really, really like * * New York Times * * On the kink of his line Shrigley can shift effortlessly from pathos to paranoia. And his work is funny - very funny; his timing devastatingly effective -- WILL SELF Funny and profound and surprising all at the same time -- HARRY HILL Shrigley deserves his immense popularity. For almost 20 years he has produced a ceaseless stream of ideas, observations, jokes and strange insights in the form of left-field drawings that have appeared in broadsheet newspapers, books and magazines as well as galleries. Deadpan, escapist and distinctively cack-handed, they make up a little world in themselves * * Observer * * Shrigley mines a mordant, scatological seam, conjuring up the dark tradition of British humour that threw up Tony Hancock and Chris Morris * * The Times * * Shrigley addresses the weird, dark and ugly sides of the world, but, most importantly, he'll make you laugh while doing so * * Shortlist * * Shrigley's bonkers, mordant, often joyously meaningless doodles are always oddly life-affirming * * Metro * *
