Master of all things darkly comic . . . An excellent new book [Fully Coherent Plan] features 254 new illustrations, all drawn in his distinctive thick black pen on stark white paper, the naivety of the image offset by the scabrous, surreal or darkly comic text * * Observer * *
For all the uneasy peculiarity of the drawings, they often capture something fundamental about the human condition . . . His mordant humour has never felt more attuned to the age . . . His world is known to us now. But he continues to invert power structures, prick egos and salute the everyday magnificently -- Leaf Arbuthnot * * Times Literary Supplement * *
Concerned about the breakdown of society? Fear not: David Shrigley has a plan . . . Shrigley points politely towards the ridiculous and arbitrary nature of the societal strictures by which we all abide and from which he seems so blissfully free * * Esquire * *
One of the Turner Prize nominee's greatest abilities as an artist is to create resoundingly funny work while also offering wry political commentary, in a fashion that is so thoroughly bizarre that it never fails to surprise . . . Shrigley's world has something to offer everyone * * Elephant * *
David Shrigley is probably the funniest gallery-type artist who ever lived -- DAVE EGGERS
Shrigley's darkly funny illustrations reflect our surreal and disquieting times * * The Big Issue * *
One of the cleverest, funniest conceptual artists . . . Genius * * Guardian * *
PRAISE FOR DAVID SHRIGLEY: The best gift book, for a crazy person you really, really like * * New York Times * *
With a casual gesture Shrigley points to that hideous shape whose name I've never known - and then he names it. And the name is profoundly, embarrassingly familiar. I'm laughing while frantically searching for a pen, so desperate to capture the feeling he has unearthed in me -- MIRANDA JULY
On the kink of his line Shrigley can shift effortlessly from pathos to paranoia. And his work is funny - very funny; his timing devastatingly effective -- WILL SELF
