デイヴィッド・シュリグリー David Shrigley


Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire

Born: 1968, Macclesfield, UK
Lives and works in Brighton, England

Glasgow School of Art, BA Fine Art, Glasgow, Scotland

Shrigley’s work is shot through with dark humor, and the pithy phrases he combines with his simple images are not only funny, but occasionally tinged with sadness too. The deadpan ennui that suffuses Shrigley’s work sets it apart from the kind of seriousness conventionally associated with art, yet at the same time, it could rightly be described as expanding the boundaries of art.
Shrigley’s unorthodox practice, which uses cynical humor to intervene in artistic systems and norms with ironic glee while simultaneously traversing the territories of pop culture and art, dislocates the world one piece at a time to bring change to our everyday. Don’t miss this opportunity to see for yourself the work of an artist armed with a veritable smorgasbord of approaches to stretching the concept of art.

1968 イギリス、マックルズフィールド生まれ

1988-91 グラスゴー・スクール・オブ・アート (スコットランド)

2020 大英帝国勲章受賞、将校(OBE)に叙任
