Hand-painted by the artist in his Brighton studio, 'Shits' is a new limited edition multiple consisting of 125 unique variations of a single image. David Shrigley's distinctive drawing style imbued with dry humour cuts to the point of human nature, making satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions. Recurring themes pervade his story telling, capturing child-like views of the world; the perspective of aliens and monsters or the compulsive habits of an eavesdropper shouting out loud. His simple, verging-on-juvenile drawings annotated with his distinctive scrawling handwriting hold up a sardonic mirror which somehow generates flashes of profound clarity.
