David Shrigley

Brain Activity
A non fiction book by

Best known for his wry and witty drawings, British artist David Shrigley has built up an artistic practice that, over the past two decades, has expanded well beyond drawing to include photography, sculpture, neon signs, animation, painting, printmaking, publishing and music. Shrigley finds humor in flat depictions of the inconsequential and the bizarre, qualities that he heightens through a deliberately limited technique. In this unusually complete look at the much-loved artist's diverse approaches, Shrigley is revealed as a master of many media and many kinds of humor, from the black humor for which he is famed to caricature and more slapstick situations. With an immediate and accessible appeal to diverse audiences, Shrigley's work offers an insightful commentary on the absurdities of human relationships. Published on the occasion of the artist's first major survey show, at London's Hayward Gallery, this beautifully produced volume includes a 7" vinyl picture-disc, featuring an exclusive recording by the artist.
