Ever-innovative Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin have just launched their annual art special which sees the Glaswegian master of silliness David Shrigley follow in the likes of Jeff Koons, Jenny Holzer and Anselm Kiefer.
As well as an interesting studio photoshoot by Ola Rindal and an interview with the Turner Prize nominee, the issue also boasts a series of new Shrigley drawings fizzing and crackling with his surreal wit. Apparently after agreeing to do it David sent over some 80 illustrated offerings, giving the SZ-Magazin team the unenviable task of whittling them down.
They’ve done it though, and the magazine which came out yesterday is testament to the genius that is David Shrigley.
