Series 2 Episode 12: David Shrigley


Welcome everyone to Art Cast Season 2 Episode 12.


In this episode Matt alongside Kathryn MCgeary, a Morley College’s Photography student, interview David Shrigley who he is joining them remotely from his studio in Devon.


David Shrigley (b.1968, UK) works across drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, animation, and print. He publishes books, produces music, occasionally designs tattoos and creates all manner of other paraphernalia.

He is one of those unique artists, like Andy Warhol or Keith Haring, who is recognised within the art world but whose reach extends far beyond to impact our wider culture.


He has received international critical acclaim for his work and in 2020 was awarded an OBE for Services to Visual Arts. In 2016, he was awarded the Fourth Plinth Commission for sculpture in Trafalgar Square and was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize Award in 2013.


David Shrigley has had solo exhibitions in museum worldwide and his works are found in prominent collections, including Museum of Modern Art (New York), Tate Britain (London), the National Gallery of Denmark (Copenhagen), amongst many others.


He has a shop based in Copehagen called Shrig shop.
