Pop artist David Shrigley's work is immediate, sometimes rude, and very funny, like a psychotic version of Matt Groening's 'Life in Hell' cartoons" ( The Guardian ). His darkly brilliant, addictively hilarious scrawls from the subconscious have already made him a star in the UK, with a growing legion of fans around the globe. The Book of Shrigley is the most extensiveand the first widely availableshowcase of his edgy but accessible off-kilter vision. Here are bad-tempered pets, strange attractions, work, S-E-X, knitting, wrestling, and a host of other everyday activities, dangers, and amusements laid bare in Shrigley's urgently illustrated panels and wickedly mischievous punch lines. Made up of almost entirely new work and bursting with color and unsettlingly funny truths, The Book of Shrigley is the ideal introduction to this comic genius and the book fans have been waiting for."
David Shrigley has participated in numerous exhibits throughout Europe, the U.S., and Australia. He has also animated music videos for the British band Blur and others. He lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.

Editorial Reviews

"Not for the faint-hearted ... Shrigley’s artwork is dangerously funny, at times offensively funny." (Independent)
