October 2006 through May 2007
Born in Macclesfield, England, in 1968, artist David Shrigley currently lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland, where he attended Glasgow School of Art from 1988 to1991.
Shrigley's work references a long history of surreal cartoonists including Edward Lear, James Thurber, Spike Milligan and Gary Larson. His awkward, intentionally messy hand-drawings are alternatives to slick, retouched digital prints.
Shrigley’s work has been shown internationally in venues including the UCLA Hammer Gallery; the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, New York; the Serpentine Gallery, London; the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston; Kunsthaus, Zurich; and many others.
