David Shrigley examines the big, medium and little things in life through his sculptures, drawings and photographs.
His work can be subtly or overtly funny, but the underlying tone is often bleak or deadpan. Scribbled, wonky drawings are published in books and magazines as well as exhibited in galleries. His sculptures are gallery-sited, or placed in the world and then photographed. Their connection with particular social or architectural places is key to their reception and meaning. Shrigley was born in Macclesfield in 1968. He is based in Glasgow, and has exhibited throughout Europe and North America, with recent solo shows at Galerie Yvon Lambert, Paris; Bard College, New York; UCLA Hammer, Los Angeles and Stephen Friedman Gallery, London.
