David Shrigley is probably the funniest gallery-type artist who ever lives -- Dave Eggers
On the kink of his line Shrigley can shift effortlessly from pathos to paranoia. And his work is funny - very funny; his timing devastatingly effective -- Will Self
Excellent . . . There's more to Shrigley than his knowing nods to high art * * Guardian, on Brain Activity, at the Hayward Gallery * *
Shrigley deserves his immense popularity. For almost 20 years he has produced a ceaseless stream of ideas, observations, jokes and strange insights in the form of left-field drawings that have appeared in broadsheet newspapers, books and magazines as well as galleries. Deadpan, escapist and distinctively cack-handed, they make up a little world in themselves * * Observer * *
Simultaneously unsettling and humorous * * Designboom, on Brain Activity, at the Hayward Gallery * *
Shrigley mines a mordant, scatological seam, conjuring up the dark tradition of British humour that threw up Tony Hancock and Chris Morris. * * The Times * *
[A] master of modern surrealism. * * Evening Standard * *
With a casual gesture Shrigley points to that hideous shape whose name I've never known - and then he names it. And the name is profoundly, embarrassingly familiar. I'm laughing while frantically searching for a pen, so desperate to capture the feeling he has unearthed in me. -- Miranda July
A must for fans of the absurd. * * ES magazine * *
Half man, half legend. * * The Skinny * *
An artist touched by comic genius and something like full-blown lunacy. * * The Lady * *
David Shrigley messes with my head. -- Moira Jeffreys * * Scotland on Sunday * *
One of the most successful contemporary artists of his generation . . . Sketchy, darkly humorous, occasionally violent and always arch, his drawings and animations are stylistically naive, and his sculptures are intentionally awkward * * CityLife * *
