Books Info:

David Shrigley: Brain Activity free pdf British artist David Shrigley (b. 1968, Macclesfield) is best known for his humorous drawings that make witty and wry observations on everyday life. Currently based in Glasgow, he trained as a fine artist and his deliberately crude graphic style gives his work an immediate and accessible appeal, while simultaneously offering insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. This book, published on the occasion of his first major survey show in London, will cover the full range of Shrigley's diverse practice which extends far beyond drawing to include photography, books, sculpture, digital animation, painting and music. It will also feature exciting new commissions and site specific installations. In addition to exhibiting internationally, he regularly contributes cartoons for the Guardian Weekend magazine and the New Statesman, and recently created an animation for the UK Save the Arts campaign.
