Product Description

Review

Funny and profound and surprising all at the same time (Harry Hill)

David Shrigley is probably the funniest gallery-type artist who ever lives (Dave Eggers)

On the kink of his line Shrigley can shift effortlessly from pathos to paranoia. And his work is funny - very funny; his timing devastatingly effective (Will Self)

Excellent . . . There's more to Shrigley than his knowing nods to high art (Guardian, on Brain Activity, at the Hayward Gallery)

Shrigley deserves his immense popularity. For almost 20 years he has produced a ceaseless stream of ideas, observations, jokes and strange insights in the form of left-field drawings that have appeared in broadsheet newspapers, books and magazines as well as galleries. Deadpan, escapist and distinctively cack-handed, they make up a little world in themselves (Observer)

Simultaneously unsettling and humorous (Designboom, on Brain Activity, at the Hayward Gallery)

[A] master of modern surrealism. (Evening Standard)

Shrigley mines a mordant, scatological seam, conjuring up the dark tradition of British humour that threw up Tony Hancock and Chris Morris. (The Times)

With a casual gesture Shrigley points to that hideous shape whose name I've never known - and then he names it. And the name is profoundly, embarrassingly familiar. I'm laughing while frantically searching for a pen, so desperate to capture the feeling he has unearthed in me. (Miranda July)

A must for fans of the absurd. (ES magazine)

David Shrigley messes with my head. (Moira Jeffreys Scotland on Sunday)

Half man, half legend. (The Skinny)

An artist touched by comic genius and something like full-blown lunacy. (The Lady)

One of the most successful contemporary artists of his generation . . . Sketchy, darkly humorous, occasionally violent and always arch, his drawings and animations are stylistically naïve, and his sculptures are intentionally awkward (CityLife)

Book Description

A profound, unsettling and very funny new book from the cult artist, nominated for the Turner Prize 2013

You will laugh, genuinely laugh, be moved by its sharp insights, and wonder at how sometimes execrable drawing can express so much about the world. then see how they're actually beautiful

David Shrigley - what can I say? He is a very talented and funny man. This book was cheaper than at his exhibition so I am very happy. A brilliant read and quirky look at life.

While this book is not quite as good as David Shrigley's 'What the hell are you doing?', it's still brilliant, inane, and absolutely hilarious.

Love this off the wall sense of humour, first saw him exhibited at Tate Modern and delighted to find books full of him.
