david shrigley : how are you feeling ?

David Shrigley (1968-) was born in Macclesfield, England and studied at Leicester Polytechnic and Glasgow School of Art. He practises in drawing, photography, painting, animation, sculpture and music.

Last week I went to a talk by him at the Fruitmarket in Edinburgh for the launch of his new book. He was very nice and said all sorts of funny things. The thing that most sticks in my head is a series of photos from his neighbour’s French gite which he stayed in: he took a picture of everything that was labelled in the house which was everything and I mean everything.

He has a odd view on the world and is very spontaneous with his work. It is usually humorous and simply built up.

The first time I discovered his work was in an exhibition in London, and in a postcard I was sent which made me laugh so much I had to keep it in the hall.
