David Shrigley: Get Your Shit Together
We are delighted to invite you to attend a special book signing with David Shrigley. Get Your Shit Together is the first book that exclusively features the iconic British artist’s recent artwork in color. It celebrates Shrigley’s absurd, deadpan sensibility through both his signature drawing style and accompanying text.
If you cannot attend but would like a signed copy, please call Arcana at 310-458-1499.
David Shrigley was born in 1968 in Macclesfield, UK. He lives and works in Brighton and Devon. In January 2020 the artist was awarded the decoration of Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire or OBE. Shrigley’s quick-witted drawings and hand-rendered texts are typically deadpan in their humor and reveal chance utterings like snippets of over-heard conversations. Recurring themes and thoughts pervade his storytelling, capturing deliberately two-dimensional views of the world, the perspective of aliens and monsters or the compulsive habits of an eavesdropper shouting out loud. While drawing is at the center of his practice, Shrigley works across an extensive range of media including sculpture, large-scale installation, animation, painting, photography and music. He consistently seeks to widen his audience by operating outside the gallery sphere, including producing artist publications and creating collaborative music projects.
