An Interview with David Shrigley

David Shrigley, "Untitled (museums are Full of Crap)," 2011.
You’re probably a fan of David Shrigley and you don’t even know it. Acting in the fields of graphic art, studio art, books, music and animation, Shrigley has earned renown for making high-brow works on paper with a disturbing, punkish bite since the early 1990s. Though trained formally at the Glasgow School of Art, his drawings maintain an unskilled look, belied only by their being witty as hell. In late September, I met with Shrigley to talk about his career and the compilation What The Hell Are You Doing?: The Essential David Shrigley, which was published earlier this year and is now available in the US.

Read what he has to say about his career, his working process, his upcoming projects, and the Glasgow music scene (way more solid than I'd realized) on Art Fag City.
