Biography of David Shrigley
David Shrigley (born 1968 in Macclesfield, UK) is best known for his dark humored satirical drawings that poke fun at and expose the banality of everyday affairs and situations. While most of his body of work consists of drawings and artist books, Shigley has an enormous creative range spanning photography, sculpture, animation, painting, and musical collaborations including the direction of videos for Blur's "Good Song" and Bonnie "Prince" Billy's "Agnes, Queen of Sorrow".
David Shrigley regularly contributes cartoons to publications like The Guardian and New Statesmen. In 2013 he was shortlisted for the Turner Prize and early in 2014 was selected to create a sculpture to be installed on Trafalgar Square's Fourth Plinth in 2016.
