Author(s): Shrigley David
David Shrigley's work has been described as having the ability to make one laugh and cry at the same time. Working across different media - drawing, sculpture, photography and painting - his output defies acategorisation and, indeed, resists analysis. "Err" illustrates the moral and artistic conundrums at the heart of contemporary commentary, using 'scratchy' drawings full of bleak humour, that confound the brain and unsettle the soul. This new edition, published to mark its tenth anniversary, has a characteristic new cover designed by the artist.
David Shrigley is an artist based in Glasgow who has achieved international recognition. The success of Err has increased as his work has reached an ever-wider audience. Shrigley's work is currently featured on a weekly basis in The Guardian Weekend magazine.
