David Shrigley (1968, Macclesfield, United Kingdom) is a Glasgow-based artist who channels the bluntness of child-like self-expression into his sculptures, photography, paintings, music, animation, and large-scale installations. His work, often found in artists' publications and collaborative music projects, echoes the deadpan qualities of his singular sense of humor. A self-branded outsider in the art world, Shrigley's compositions are flat, chilling representations of everyday life as bizarre, disquieting, and inconsequential. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2013, and his solo work has been shown at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, and the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen.

““A drawing is its own reward; it's not a means to an end.”” - DAVID SHRIGLEY
