David Shrigley

David Shrigley seemed to be everywhere Autumn/Fall 2012 - certainly in places I found myself to be anyway.

In Bradford he gave a fantastically uncelebratory talk about his work - at the Bradford 1 Gallery; something other blogs seemed to note too (see the Culture Vulture write-up).

He simultaneously exhibited at Manchester's Cornerhouse 


Selected images / video from the show:













The top and back of my head make an appearance at both....


A different exhibition, but it's good to hear Shrigley talk....

'Obey' paste-ups

My fascination for these illustrated, printed, paste-ups remains unabated.
These Shepard Fairey paste-ups in Manchester's Northern Quarter were photographed recently. Looking through my other Obey photos I realised that the same site was used 3 years earlier


2013


and in 2010....




and outside the Baltic in 2007....
