David Shrigley: exclusive illustrations for the New Statesman
A gallery of drawings by the irreverent and witty artist.
In this week's New Statesman (out Thursday 26 January) we're publishing an exclusive new illustration by David Shrigley to coincide with his first major survey exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, London.
David Shrigley: Brain Activity opens on 1 February and features works covering the full range of the British artist's oeuvre -- photography, books, sculpture, animation, painting, music -- as well as new artworks and installations he has created specially for the Southbank Centre show.
As a former New Statesman illustrator one of his large drawings was published in the mag every other week for a year and a half, and above you'll find a few classic Shrigleys dug out from the NS archive for the occasion.
Illustrations originally appeared in the following issues of the New Statesman: 14 June 2010 | 5 July 2010 | 2 August 2010 | 13 September 2010 | 11 October 2010 | 25 October 2010 | 8 November 2010 | 22 November 2010 | 6 December 2010
