The Human Body is a signed, limited edition screenprint taken from an original line drawing commissioned by Book Works. Turner prize 2013 nominee Shrigley describes his own work as having an 'untutored, rubbishy and scratchy aesthetic' and delights in the 'doodly thing as something that can sometimes express the things you can't intellectually'. The Human Body is typical of Shrigley's output, a drawing that is as disturbing as it is hilarious.
