Valentine’s Day is coming up and, to mark the occasion, David Shrigley has created four exclusive, pink covers for Evening Standard Magazine. The drawings represent modern love in all its manifestations; love at first sight, the insecurities that may follow and break-up tears are visualised by the artist on the front cover of the weekly magazine. It looks like David Shrigley has had a busy month. Only a couple of weeks ago, it was announced that the artist had added 91 new artworks to the 293 monochrome drawings that already hung on the walls of Sketch.
Laura Weir, editor of ES Magazine, says that this week’s Love Issue is “celebrating the L word in all its forms and spreading a little more of the good stuff around the capital.” This is not the magazine’s first collector’s edition. In July of 2017, ES Magazine released six unique covers to mark the 12th anniversary of the 7/7 London bombings. The covers were designed by various prominent artists including Ai WeiWei, Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley.
