Shrigley describes his own style as “a kind of artistic doodling, coupled with a not-so-beautiful handwriting.” Described by his professors as “too funny,” Shrigley has always felt, however, that he “only wants to draw like this, not any other way.” Serious art can also be funny, and the opposite of serious art is not funny art, but bad art, Shrigley said.

Black Cats Everywhere - David Shrigley

David Shrigley – Word Play and Provocation

David Shrigley was born in 1968 in Macclesfield, GB and studied at the Glasgow School of Art. He is best known for his satirical drawings with text, which make fun of and display the banality of everyday situations with black humour. Most of his work consists of drawings, sculptures, installations and paintings. As a big music fan he also designs record covers again and again.
Shrigley lives outside Glasgow and still draws cartoons for publications such as The Guardian and The New Statesman. Shrigley was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2013, following his major retrospective at the Hayward Gallery in London entitled “Brain Activity”. In early 2014 he was commissioned to design a sculpture for the fourth pedestal of Trafalgar Square. “Really Good” was unveiled in September 2016 for the Fourth Plinth Commission. From 2015 to 2018, the exhibition “Lose Your Mind”, organised by the British Council, travelled to six locations around the world, including Shanghai, China, Seoul and Mexico. In January 2020, Shrigley was awarded the “Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire” (OBE). In March 2020 Ruinart Champagne announced Shrigley as his Artist Carte Blanche for 2020.

Shrigley’s works can be found in major international collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA, the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois, USA, the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany, the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany, the Statens Museum für Kunst, Copenhagen, Denmark, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Foundation for Contemporary Art, Vienna, Austria, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, Scotland, the Tate, London, England, and the British Council, London, England, the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia.

The Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich dedicated the first major solo exhibition to him in Germany in 2014.

From 2015 to 2018 the British Council-organised exhibition ‘Lose Your Mind’ travelled to six venues including Power Station of Art, Shanghai, China; Storage by Hyundai Card in Seoul, Korea and Instituto-Cultural-Cabañas in Guadalajara, Mexico. In January 2020 Shrigley was awarded the decoration of Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire or OBE.
