Witty, prolific and darkly humorous, Shrigley’s work pinpoints moments in a disjointed stream of consciousness and reveals an offbeat world. Eccentric moral dilemmas must be faced at every turn. Every situation is simultaneously bizarre and vaguely familiar. Unusual habits, dreams, facial features, school playgrounds and bodily functions are all fair game.
