Sobre este título:


"I never really wanted to be this kind of artist, but now that I am, I quite like it," Shrigley says, "maybe its because I can now make a living from it, but I really enjoy doing my drawings as much as watching telly. Well, more than Taggart anyway, but probably less than Frazier".

Críticas: Imagine Jean-Michel Basquiat with a marker pen, stripped of artistic pretension, or the imaginary sketchbooks of Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, and you might just start to grasp the weird and wonderful world of David Shrigley.

As Will Self concedes in his introduction to Shrigley's new book Why We Got the Sack from the Museum, it is virtually impossible to explain the crude, anarchic humour and energy of Shrigley's drawings and observations. In fact, Shrigley's work can hardly be described as "drawing" at all, so unusual are his child-like, line depictions and comments on the dysfunctional urban world which he sees around him. Bees with human heads refuse to land on vegetation dismissed as "crap"; Shrigley invites the reader to attach postcards to car windows informing their owners that they are in fact the result of laboratory experiments involving rat droppings; a hastily drawn cup of tea is advertised for sale, £100 or nearest offer, white with two sugars. And so the book goes on, extremely funny and playful. Its darker and more cynical moments are made even funnier, and then disturbing, by the sheer naivety of the drawings.

The fusion of word and image is perplexing but brilliant, and is wonderfully synthesised by the consummate production of the Redstone Press, whose offbeat presentation perfectly matches Shrigley's concise, surreal style. David Shrigley is an extraordinary and significant artist, and Why We Got the Sack From the Museum is an extraordinary book. --Jerry Brotton.
