David Shrigley art prints & posters, available now at artrepublic.com

Acclaimed British artist David Shrigley is known for his naive ink sketches and text-based drawings. Graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1991, Shrigley spent years working within the music industry, directing videos for Blur, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, and Queens of the Stone Age. Instantly recognisable, Shrigley’s work takes the form of small-scale sketches, usually rendered in simple, black ink, which play with our expectations of figurative skill and expertise. Deliberately distorting his figures, Shrigley creates the illusion of childish ineptitude, drawing impossible perspectives and strange angles in rough, hard lines. Suffused with deadpan humour, Shrigley’s images are usually accompanied by small sections of wry text, which intensify the offbeat naivety of his unique aesthetic. In 2016, Shrigley’s ‘Really Good’ sculpture was installed on Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth: an elongated thumbs up that captures the playfulness of his sketches in heavy, cast bronze. Alongside prints and originals, Shrigley creates sculptures, books, and art objects, as well as political cartoons and animations.
