Shrigley’s work is animated by dark, deadpan humour and a sideways look at the human condition. Death, the most serious, sad and sometimes feared subject also receives the artist’s lightness of touch. Taxidermy animals appear to spring to life, while other works suggest the end is near.

Shrigley says «The big themes are the ones that interest me, and the ones that have the potential to be the most comic.»
