David Shrigley

Born in Cheshire in 1968, Shrigley started studying art at Leicester Polytechnic in 1987 before heading to Glasgow School of Art for his degree in environment art in 1988, a time when he believed “there wasn't a precedent for people selling work that wasn't figurative painting.” Shrigley believes he is an outsider to the art world for his flat compositions taking on the inconsequential, the bizarre, and the disquieting elements of daily life. David Shrigley has exhibited across the world, with his work featuring in high profile collections across the globe including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia; Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany; Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen; Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany; Thyssen-Bornemisza Contemporary Art Foundation, Vienna; Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; Tate, London; and The British Council, London. In 2020, David Shrigley was awarded an OBE for his service to visual arts.
